Motion text

That this House considers the suffering of families who are unable to register their loved one's death after a coronial inquest; notes that lack of involvement in the process often contributes to grief felt by families affected and that this situation is more prevalent when a death occurs within the military such as in the case of SAC Robert Fleeting of East Kilbride, who died at RAF Benson in Oxfordshire; and acknowledges that more can and should be done by Government and Justice agencies to support families involvement at this time particularly as families feel it is their duty to be able to carry out this task as it is the last remaining thing they can do for their loved one.
