HL Deb 12 May 2003 vol 648 c13WA
Baroness Masham of Ilton asked Her Majesty's Government

What advice they give for determining whether a person desiring suicide should be counselled to change their mind; and whether the person's disability or non-disability is considered as a factor for such a determination. [HL2602]

Baroness Andrews

The type of counselling a person contemplating suicide should receive is a matter for the practitioner concerned to determine in consultation with the individual and their family or carer. A persons's disability would be one of the factors that the practitioner would need to take into account in reaching a clinical judgment.
