Question

100. Deputy Matt Carthy asked the Minister for Justice if the processing of a death certificate will be expedited for a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [22548/21]

Answer

Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): As the Deputy will be aware, coroners are statutory officers exercising quasi-judicial functions, in relation to which the coroner is independent. Neither I nor my Department have any function in the conduct of their business. 
However, to be of assistance, officials from my Department made contact with the Coroner concerned, and have been assured that the Death Certificate will issue in the coming days.
