Traveling Abroad for Assisted Suicide is AllowedAssisted Suicide
People in England will still be allowed to travel abroad for an assisted suicide, the Health Secretary said today.
Matt Hancock made the comments after the Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, allowed an Urgent Question on assisted suicide.
Andrew Mitchell MP, who recently changed his mind on assisted suicide, asked what arrangements had been put in place for people from England who wanted to travel abroad for an assisted suicide.
With new restrictions coming into force across England because of the coronavirus, termed lockdown 2.0, travelling abroad is banned, except for work purposes.
In the brief debate that followed there were some good points raised by MPs from across the House of Commons.
