Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill continued its Committee stage in the House of Lords on Friday, though only a few of the many proposed amendments were discussed and it is now unlikely to make further progress until after the election.
Commentators are divided on whether the detailed debate and multiple proposed amendments demonstrate widespread support for the principle behind the Bill. But, as campaign group Dignity in Dying point out, “We are now debating how, not if, we change the law on assisted dying for the terminally ill.”
The Guardian reports on the debate.
