Campaigner: Assisted suicide would be 'radical change'

Dr Peter Saunders, from Care Not Killing, a UK based organisation which promotes care and opposes euthanasia said Paul Lamb is seeking a "very radical change in the law."

He said: "If he was successful in getting that legal change it would drive a coach and horses through not the suicide act but the murder act as well and that would put a lot of vulnerable, elderly people at risk
