Question to the Ministry of Justice:

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many notices were issued by coroners in England and Wales under Schedule 5 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 requiring the production of documents in each of the last three years for which information is available.

Answered by Edward Argar - Minister of State (Department of Health and Social Care)

Coroners are independent judicial office holders. As such it would not be appropriate for Ministers to comment on or seek to influence the conduct of their investigations.

The Ministry of Justice does not hold information on the number of notices issued by coroners under schedule 5 to the Coroners and Justice Act 2009.
