From Nine To Noon, 11:50 am on 28 October 2015

The Law Commission has just tabled a report in parliament; Death, Burial and Cremation: A new law for contemporary New Zealand. The review of the current burial and cremation laws suggests some changes are needed, including a better registration system for funeral service providers, and more clarity around the full costs of a funeral and burial or cremation. The lead commissioner Wayne Mapp discusses the recommendations.
