The  Coroners Amendment Bill has passed its committee stage.

This Bill makes a number of amendments following a targeted review of the Coroners Act 2006. The amendments will improve the quality, consistency, and timeliness of coronial investigations and decision making; clarify the role of coroners and reduce duplication between coroners and other authorities that investigate deaths and accidents; clarify the role coroners have in making recommendations to prevent future deaths and the relationship with agencies that have policy and operational responsibility in those areas; and ensue resources are used effectively.
