§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will legislate to amend the Local Authority Cemetery Act 1977, and the Local Government Act 1972, to allow exhumation in defined circumstances to allow the re-use of graves; and what response he has sent to the representations on this topic from Reverend Peter Jupp, director of the National Funerals College. 
§ Mr. Sackville
There are no plans to amend the Local Authorities' Cemeteries Order 1977 or the Local Government Act 1972 to permit the exhumation of human remains for the re-use of existing graves. We have no record of the receipt of any representations from Reverend Jupp on this matter.
