Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - I move -

That the following words be added to subclause 1, " and a copy of such entry shall be forwarded to the Minister."

Under this clause we propose to vest in the superintendent all the powers of a coroner, and I think, therefore, that he should be required to forward to the Minister a copy of the entry of the result of every inquiry conducted by him. Under sub-clause 2 of this provision he is merely bound to report to the Minister if, in his opinion, death has been caused by violence or accident. I think that in every case a report should be forwarded to the Minister.
