    Mr speaker, this bill seems to say that if there are 99 houses and 1 shop within 600 feet that is approximately 183 metres it is ok to cremate people in the open. Would it not be better for the councils to have their own permits to cremate people in the open on a clear area?

    Oh, and I'm definitely voting no to anything with poor numbering onto our statute books. The Queen would be appalled.

    Can thunder_chunky give a short introduction to this Bill for those of us not expert in the current legislation and issues surrounding cremation. What are the rules currently? Why do they need to be changed? Why are your rules the right rules?
    I'll add that before the second reading

    I have no objections to this in principle, although I am a little dubious as to the practicalities of fires not reaching the right temperature, or blowing out, and the mourners being left with a half-melted relative. Of course, all cremations have the risk of being incomplete, but this method seems more prone to it.

    Despite this, it seems an acceptable alternative to indoor cremation.

    (On another point, is the acronym OFL a little inappropriate, especially if said out loud?)
    Half melted relatives made me :lol:
    How they get the flames to such a temporature that cremation can sufficiently take place is, I would say, not neccesary to mention.

    :confused: Surely you already know what the current legislation is and what the arguments are for changing them?

    I'll have to go back to the various websites I used as a source.
    Plus I'm at work at the moment.

    So I'll get the relevant text and post it soonish

    I was merely curious.

    Could I be forgiven for not fully understanding the purpose of the Bill, other than for the sake of writing a Bill. I cannot see any reason to disagree with the proposition, but nevertheless I don't think it's a particularly important issue. Unless it is perhaps to make some pagans or religious folk happy in some way...
