Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill [HL] — 12 May 2006 at 17:17

Baroness Warwick of Undercliffe voted in the minority (Not-Content).

This division was on an amendment to give a second reading to the Bill in six months' time, rather than immediately. This is a polite way of indicating opposition to the Bill. A six months' delay would make it impossible for the Bill to progress in this session.

Some controversy emerged during the debate over whether it was accepted Lords practice to, in effect, reject a Private Members' Bill at second reading.
