Supplementary Order Paper

Tuesday, 10 September 2019

End of Life Choice Bill

Proposed amendment

Agnes Loheni, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 19

After clause 19(3) (page 14, after line 9), insert:

(4)

The SCENZ Group must—

(a)

keep written records of its operations; and

(b)

keep these records in a secure manner; and

(c)

retain these records for at least 7 years.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the End of Life Choice Bill. It would require basic record-keeping on the part of the SCENZ Group.

The operations of this proposed statutory body can scarcely be considered to be less important than various other activities (for example, transfers of real property) where the law specifies that records must be kept for at least 7 years.
