POINT OF ORDER – ASSISTED SUICIDE – 10 September 2012

Dr Julian Lewis: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The complex and sensitive issue of assisted suicide is one which thoughtful people on both sides of the argument, on both sides of the House, take very seriously. Have you had any indication that a Government Minister will make a statement on whether or not the rather superficial comments attributed in the media over the weekend to two junior Health Ministers represent any change in Government policy on this important issue of conscience?

[Mr Speaker: No, but the hon. Gentleman might wish to approach the Backbench Business Committee in pursuit of a debate on this matter.]
