The controversial topic of euthanasia could once again be about to test our politicians.
The last time the issue was debated was in 2003, when the bill was lost by just two votes. Now Labour's Maryann Street is submitting a bill to the members' ballot that would see euthanasia decriminalised.
There would be 'strict conditions', such as having two separate medical practitioners deem the person concerned is of sound mind, has a terminal illness and has not been coerced in any way.
Ms Street says she hopes recent high profile cases will make MPs realise the time is right to take another look at the issue.
