Coroners Amendment Bill 1999

Bill No. 73
Long Title The purpose of this Bill is to amend the Coroners Act 1996 by providing for a Deputy State Coroner who will assist the State Coroner with coronial work throughout the State. In order to provide for the absence of the Deputy State Coroner the Bill also provides for an Acting Deputy State Coroner who would also be appointed by the Attorney General on the recommendation of the State Coroner. There are a number of provisions which extend the time limits for applications to the Supreme Court in relation to various decisions of a Coroner. The Bill also provides that if the senior next of kin has requested that a post mortem examination not be performed, the senior next of kin can withdraw that request and the Coroner may then direct that a post mortem examination be performed.
