asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to ensure a more suitable arrangement in the future for the regulation of payments made by coroners' officers to jurymen.

I am consulting the local authority associations and the Coroners' Society on the question whether it is necessary or desirable to take steps with a view to instituting a standard practice in this matter.
