A MOTION was passed to regulate funeral services and end cosy deals between nursing homes, hospitals, crematoriums and funeral parlours.

Delegates spoke of the danger of charities pressing volunteers to promote pre-paid funeral plans, in which they had direct commercial interests. David Chidgey, the party's trade and industry spokesman, said: "Proper regulation is the only way."
