Constituents back national debate on assisted suicide

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Meg Munn MP brought together residents in her Heeley constituency to discuss the highly emotive issue of assisted suicide. The meeting heard a wide range of views whilst discussing the report from the Director of Public Prosecutions which aims to clarify the current law. This consultation document identified questions on which The Crown Prosecution Service invited comments, including views on the factors for and against prosecution.


Meg said:


"I’m very grateful to the constituents who attended. There were many thoughtful contributions, with people sharing not only their views but their personal experiences.


There were a wide range of views but all agreed that this is a complex area of law and any changes must be made with great care. I will continue to call for a Royal Commission as I think this would lead to a productive national debate on the issue.”


At the meeting the constituents started with an open discussion on the topic, before focusing on the specific questions contained in the document. Meg has taken note of all of the opinions expressed and will send them to The Crown Prosecution Service. Earlier in the year Meg suggested to the Ministry of Justice that a Royal Commission be established to examine this complex issue, and was advised this may be a possibility. 


The public consultation period ends on 16th December - for details visit: http://www.cps.gov.uk/consultations/as_index.html
