A likely timetable for an inquest into the Hillcrest Primary School Tragedy could be revealed by the Coroner tomorrow.
Six children were killed on December 16 last year when an inflatable jumping castle was blown 10 metres into the air by a gust of wind.
Coroner Olivia McTaggart will chair a case management conference in the Devonport Magistrate’s Court tomorrow, at which she will outline the intended course of the investigation and the state of progress towards the holding of a public inquest.
Ms McTaggart says she’s received a large volume of evidence including witness statements, forensic reports and video and photographic material.
She’s still waiting for a report from Work Safe Tasmania and a weather expert.
