Schedule 5 - Power to modify or transfer functions: bodies and offices
Public Bodies Bill [Lords]
Roberta Blackman-Woods (Shadow Minister (Communities and Local Government); City of Durham, Labour)
I wish to press the Minister on the issue of cost. We accept that the initial costings were made according to what is desirable in setting up the chief coroner’s office, rather than—in these very straitened times—what is absolutely essential. We would have liked a detailed breakdown of the limited costs that are essential in the setting up the coroner’s office, and it would be helpful if the Minister agreed to set that out at some stage.
