A motion (No.80) had been tabled by the South Central Regional Council at the BMA’s annual representatives meeting, calling for the BMA to move to a position of neutrality on assisted suicide. Following a vote, the motion was comprehensively defeated after 198 delegates, some 63%, opposed the motion while 115 voted in favour of it.
