Voluntary euthanasia bill soon in Tasmania

1:02 pm on 2 July 2012

Legislation enabling voluntary euthanasia could be in place in Tasmania by this time next year.

A discussion paper is soon to be released and the ABC reports the response is expected to be overwhelming.

Researchers have visited Holland to see mobile assisted-suicide vehicles there, and Switzerland.

The legislation is to be introduced by State premier Lara Giddings.
