Palliative Care for the Terminally Ill

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent representations she has received about the Palliative Care for the Terminally Ill Bill; how many (a) supported and (b) opposed the Bill; and if she will make a statement. (73279)

We have received 20 letters concerning the Palliative Care for the Terminally Ill Bill forwarded by hon. Members on behalf of constituents, and one from a member of the public directly. All of these were supportive of the Bill.

The Government are still considering the Bill, and will make their position known in due course.
