I am broadly with the hon. Gentleman, but we do not have a national coroner system at the moment. We may have, after the reform Bill, but we do not at the moment. If the hon. Gentleman shuts up now and withdraws his amendment, I shall happily, with him or without him, go away and consider the matter. I am not terribly bothered whether it is the Secretary of State, Lord Chief Justice or whoever, but I want to explore the matter further. I just need a device to get said individuals in place to do what I want them to do under clause 64, and I fear that the longer the hon. Gentleman goes on, the more I am dissuaded.
