On 22 October, Members of the House of Lords (Peers) will debate and possibly vote on the Assisted Dying Bill at Second Reading. The Bill aims to legalise assisted suicide in England and Wales for terminally ill adults with six months or less left to live.
UPDATE: the Bill has passed unopposed at Second Reading. This is entirely normal for Bills in the House of Lords at Second Reading. A large number of Peers spoke against the Bill so thank you to all of you who emailed Peers. You can read highlights from the debate on our website.
