That this House is shocked and disgusted by the revelations made on the Channel Four Dispatches programme on 25 June 2012 that the Co-operative Funeralcare organisation uses warehouses on industrial estates to store coffins with bodies in them rather than Chapels of Rest; notes that Co-operative Funeralcare is the largest funeral care provider in the UK with a reputation for trust, sensitivity and good customer service; is appalled that this reputation has been compromised by management directives to mislead grieving families into purchasing expensive funerals and charging customers an array of charges for services which they did not want; believes that a mutual organisation can, and should, have higher ethical standards than a purely profit-orientated company; and calls for those responsible for these actions within the organisation to be removed from their positions.
