An assisted dying bill proposed by former Labour Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer is to be debated in the House of Lords today.
The Bill proposes allowing doctors to prescribe a lethal dose to terminally ill patients judged to have less than six months to live.
Around 130 peers, including former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey who said he supported new legislation on the issue, are set to take part in the debate which is expected to last 10 hours.
A survey conducted for ITV's Tonight programme found 70% would support allowing assisted dying under the framework outlined by the Assisted Dying Bill
Ahead of tomorrow's Lords debate on assisted peers, Tonight speaks to those arguing passionately for and against the Bill.
Chris Woodhead, the ex-Ofsted chief who suffers from motor neurone disease, has made an emotional call for assisted dying to be legalised.
Lord Falconer insists his Bill will provide clarity to fix Britain's "broken" laws around assisted death whilst protecting the vulnerable.
