I spoke in today’s Parliamentary debate in Westminster Hall, supporting a petition to change the law on assisted dying. Signed by 155,805 people the petition said that “The Government should bring forward legislation to allow assisted dying for adults who are terminally ill and have mental capacity. It should be permitted subject to strict upfront safeguards, assessed by two doctors independently, and self-administered by the dying person” (read the full text here).

I’m a Vice-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Choice at the End of Life and have spoken previously on the issue, drawing on my experience of my father‘s death, and was encouraged in today’s debate that more MPs are moving towards support for a change which is backed by 84% of the public.
