2 P-04-671 Legalisation of Assisted Dying
The Committee considered the petition for the first time and agreed:
· to close the petition, given the strong argument that it should not have been accepted as admissible when submitted as it appears that the Assembly does not have the power to implement the petition; and
· when writing to the petitioner to include a link to the transcript of the plenary debate on the issue which took place on 10 December 2014.
