A new assisted suicide Bill in the House of Lords will almost certainly have its Second Reading—its first proper debate—in six weeks, on Friday 22nd October.

Baroness Meacher’s Assisted Dying Bill seeks to legalise assisted suicide in England and Wales for those with a terminal illness who have six months or less to live.

It is the first debate on assisted suicide legislation since 2015.
