I have not had any formal discussions with faith groups on this matter, however the Ministry of Justice has just consulted on the proposals for the future of the office of the chief coroner as part of a wider consultation on the Public Bodies Bill reforms and received responses from faith groups. Faith groups were also consulted on the new charter for the coroner service, and we have corresponded with leaders of faith groups on specific coroner issues such as less invasive post-mortem examinations.
