Parliament to vote on end of life choice

first_imgNewsHub 8 June 2017The question of whether terminally or irredeemably ill people should be allowed to choose to end their own life is to be decided in Parliament.David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill has been pulled from the private members’ ballot to be voted upon by MPs.The Bill is likely to be a conscience vote.Mr Seymour told The AM Show in May he believed he had the numbers to get the Bill through the first reading at least.“I think at least a third are definitely on for it. Maybe a fifth are hardcore opposed for personal or spiritual or whatever reasons. There’s a mushy middle in there I think we would get. We would get it through the first reading,” he said at the time.The Bill would allow people the choice to receive medical assistance to end their own life when certain conditions are met.Mr Seymour tweeted that he was pleased the Bill was drawn.“The End of Life Choice Bill has been drawn. Fantastic news, long awaited. Parliament will finally debate a vital issue of personal freedom,” he said.A 2016 poll found two-thirds of New Zealand adults support assisted dying, with another 21 percent on the fence.Family First responded almost immediately to the announcement, saying they will launch a counter-campaign to ‘kill’ Mr Seymour’s Bill.http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2017/06/parliament-to-vote-on-end-of-life-choice.htmllast_img read more

Award for golf volunteer James Drury

first_img Teenage golf volunteer James Drury is putting something back into the sport he loves. The 18 year-old has clocked up more than 50 hours of his free time helping out at Gaudet Luce Golf Club in Worcestershire and his achievement has been recognised with a certificate and pin badge from England Golf. As well as supporting the work of PGA professional Russell Adams in running coaching sessions, the Droitwich Spa High School pupil has been helping younger members of the club make their mark. He has also been helping out at special sessions to help blind people get into golf by acting as a mentor. James said: “I started playing golf when I was 12 as my brother had just started and after my first lesson I came away thinking this is what I want to do. Both my parents also play, including my mum who only recently took up the sport. “Russell has been very supportive of me joining in on the coaching side. I have helped out with New2Golf practice evenings on the range, blind golf coaching sessions by pairing up with a blind person and their guide on the par 3 course, as well as girls’ county coaching sessions – Russell is the girls’ county coach. “I’ve also helped some younger members achieve their handicaps by completing handicap cards for them. I want to try and give them the feeling I got when I first started, which I can’t value any higher.” James is a member of the England Youth Panel, adding: “I was excited to be selected as it is a great opportunity to discuss ways in which we can encourage more young people to get into golf.” James’s ambition is to work in the golf industry, adding: “I’m working on getting my handicap down to four and studying for my A levels with the hope that one day I may be able to complete a golf degree and work within the industry.” He would recommend golf to people of all ages, saying: “I would encourage everyone to take up golf as it’s an incredibly rewarding sport with a very good social side, which means making new friends is easy. “I was very lucky when I first started as my local club is very accommodating and welcoming to every one of all ages and abilities. Russell and his team of coaches have a fantastic knowledge and were able to provide quality coaching to give me a perfect footing in the game, but with the priority being on fun and enjoying golf.” Mark Laing, development officer for the Worcestershire Golf Development Group, says: “James should be congratulated for the time and effort he has put back into the sport. “Volunteers are the lifeblood of many clubs and organisations and the hours of unpaid work they undertake are vital to the well-being of the sport. “They carry out that work without looking for recognition for their efforts, but it is nice once in a while to pay tribute and say thanks for everything they contribute to the golfing world.” 23 Sep 2015 Award for golf volunteer James Drury last_img read more
