LETTER: Representing local wishes
I was appalled by the lack of knowledge shown by Caroline Ansell MP in her ‘House to Home’ article [Herald, August 28]. I am a member of Dignity in Dying and have followed the forming of Lord Falconer’s Bill step by step, word by word for more than two years. It is obvious that Mrs Ansell has little or no knowledge of the contents, objectives, and safety features embedded within the Bill yet she states that ‘in all conscience’ she will oppose the Bill. I would like to remind Mrs Ansell that she was not elected just to follow her conscience. She is in her position to represent the wishes of her constituents.
