Motion text

That this House salutes the success of all those involved in the hospice movement and in palliative care; congratulates those who care for the terminally ill and the dying on the great progress which has been achieved in the development of palliative medicine in the United Kingdom; notes with profound concern the fact that in the Netherlands euthanasia now accounts for 3,700 deaths each year of which more than 1, 000 are as a result of involuntary euthanasia; and registers its opposition to the decriminalisation of euthanasia in this country.
