Parliament's inquiry into assisted dying

From Nine To Noon, 9:13 am on 1 September 2015

The health select committee has agreed to hold an inquiry into assisted dying. The inquiry is in response to a petition signed by nearly 9000 people, and asked for an investigation into public attitudes on medically assisted dying in the event of a terminal illness or irreversible condition which makes life unbearable. Health Select Committee chairman Simon O'Connor discusses the committee's approach.
