Supplementary Order Paper

Tuesday, 10 September 2019

End of Life Choice Bill

Proposed amendment

Joanne Hayes, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 20

After clause 20(2) (page 14, after line 25), insert:

(3)

The Review Committee 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 by requiring basic record-keeping on the part of the Review Committee.

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.
