MoJ Consultation on raising the mandatory retirement age for judicial office holders (which includes coroners) – consultation closes
The MoJ are consulting on raising the mandatory retirement age for judicial office holders – which includes coroners.
The LGA has contacted MoJ expressing serious concern that local authorities have not been formally included in this consultation given the direct crossover with local authority responsibilities under the Coroners & Justice Act 2009 and any potential cost implications. Coroners have been consulted.
MoJ have confirmed that it will consider local authority responses.
Therefore, the LGA would urge you to respond to this consultation which ends on 16 October 2020.
Please forward a copy of your response to the MoJ consultation to us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
