To ask the Secretary of State for Justice when a revised version of the Charter for the Bereaved will be issued; and if he will ensure that charities representing those bereaved as a result of sudden medical deaths are consulted before the revision takes place.

I will be issuing the draft Charter for Bereaved People for further consultation in the early summer. The draft charter was published alongside the draft Coroners Bill in June 2006. Like the Bill, the charter has been subject to extensive consultation and has been revised in response to helpful and constructive feedback from stakeholders, including charities representing the bereaved as a result of sudden medical deaths. These charities will also be invited to comment on the revised draft.
