You are invited to provide input into our submission on the legislative scheme for voluntary assisted dying in Queensland.
A recent Parliamentary inquiry by the Communities, Disability Services and Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Committee determined that the majority of the Queensland community, including health practitioners, is supportive of the introduction of voluntary assisted dying legislation in Queensland.
The Queensland Law Reform Commission has been asked by the Government to develop an appropriate legislative scheme for voluntary assisted dying in Queensland.
The Commission has released a Consultation Paper (WP No 79) outlining key issues and inviting written submissions in response to a series of questions detailed in the paper. The Consultation Paper is available via the link under Useful Links on this page. Under Useful Links you will also find a link to the report from the Communities, Disability Services and Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Committee on Voluntary Assisted Dying.
COTA Queensland plans to make a submission to the Queensland Law Reform Commission consultation. We are asking for your input on any of the issues or questions in the Consultation Paper.
This consultation closed on Sunday 22 November 2020.
