MPs have voted 63 to 57 for the End of Life Choice Bill to go to a public vote at the next election.

The legislation still needs to pass its third and final reading in Parliament next month, but the referendum’s green-light makes that highly likely by ensuring the continued support of NZ First’s nine MPs.

More to come…
