Supplementary Order Paper

Tuesday, 10 September 2019

End of Life Choice Bill

Proposed amendment to SOP No 259

Simon O’Connor, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 19

In clause 19, replace subclause (1) (page 17) with:

(1)

The Director-General must—

(a)

establish the SCENZ Group by appointing to it the number of members that the Director-General considers appropriate; and

(b)

maintain the SCENZ Group by making additional appointments as needed from time to time.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends Supplementary Order Paper No 259 amending the End of Life Choice Bill. It would ensure that the responsibility of the Director-General in relation to the SCENZ Group is ongoing by giving the Director-General a continued mandate to make appointments to the SCENZ Group rather than, as in the wording of the Bill, merely an initial power to “establish” it.
