(Scotland) Bill

End Of Life Assistance
On 10 February 2010, the Scottish Parliament established the End of Life Assistance (Scotland) Bill Committee, to consider the general principles of Margo MacDonald's Bill and report on them to the Scottish Parliament.

On Wednesday 3 March 2010, the Committee launched a public call for evidence, inviting individuals and organisations to make written submissions with their views on the Bill. The consultation closed on Wednesday, 12 May 2010. CNK has made its submission to the consultation and along with a briefing Paper on the Bill itself.

Scottish Parliament then called for Oral evidence. The programme of Stage 1 oral evidence has now concluded. Over the coming weeks, the Committee will draft and publish its Stage 1 report. To follow the progress of the Committee's work, please visit the website.

The Official Report of the Committee meetings, which are a substantially verbatim record, is available to view online.
