Under s34(2) of the Coroners Act 1993, the Coroner may comment on...public health or safety or the administration of justice, connected with the death or disaster being investigated. Because the Coroner’s ability to comment and make recommendations can be very challenging for those persons or institutions at the bar table during an inquest, this CPD examines the ways to minimise receiving such comments and recommendations by the Coroner. It would be beneficial to be familiar with the Coroners Act 1993 before attending.
