Department of Justice and Equality
100. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality 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]
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.
