asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when his revision of coroners' districts will he announced.

Mr. Lane

Under the Local Government Act 1972 the new county councils will he required to submit to my right hon. Friend by the end of 1973 proposals for the division of their counties into coroners' districts. My right hon. Friend has recently had discussions about this with the local authority associations and the Coroners Society, and he expects to issue some guidance very shortly.
