Former Archbishop to talk about assisted dying in lecture near Havant

Have your say

THE former Archbishop of Canterbury will visit a country estate near Havant to talk about assisted dying.

The Lord Carey of Clifton will take part in a debate at St Paul’s Chapel, at Stansted House, to talk about his support for the so-called ‘Assisted Dying Bill’.

Last year he backed the bill, which would allow doctors to give lethal drugs under certain circumstances to terminally-ill patients.

There will be a response to the Lord Carey’s lecture by the Reverend Dr Brendan McCarthy, the Church of England’s national adviser on medical ethics.

There will be contributions from Professor Simon Lee, Fellow of St Edmund’s College, Cambridge.

The lecture takes place at 4pm on September 15. Tickets, including tea at Stansted House, are £12. Email
