Bill Presented — Palliative Care Bill — 24 Apr 2009 at 13:16

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

Like many other hon. Members, I have been through the experience of losing a much loved relative in the sometimes undignified setting of a hospital ward. So my motivation in proposing this Bill is to secure a better quality of life for the final days of people's natural lives.

Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

The House divided: Ayes 13, Noes 26.
