At the same time as the Health and Social Care Committee Inquiry into ‘Assisted Dying’ – Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide (EAS) – across December 2023 and January 2023, similar consultations were held in two of the Crown Dependencies, in the Bailiwick of Jersey (from 17 October 2022 to 14 January 2023) and in the Isle of Man (from 01 December 2022 to 26 January 2023), on legislative proposals to introduce EAS into the law and medical practice of both those jurisdictions.
Both consultations took place via a series of set questions, with multiple choice answers and space to give explanations of the answer. Anscombe Centre Staff gave submissions to both, and you can now read the submission to the Jersey consultation (composed by our Education and Research Officer, Dr Chris Wojtulewicz), and to the Isle of Man consultation (composed by our Director, Professor David Albert Jones).
