Last night, David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill was back in Parliament - but not for its third reading. MPs were debating whether to send the bill to a public referendum at the next election, should it enter into force. That’s the result of NZ First promising they would only support the bill at third reading if a referendum is agreed to. Last night’s vote resulted in a close 63-57 vote, with NZ First’s 8 votes proving crucial. Stewart Sowman-Lund spoke to ACT party leader David Seymour to get his thoughts and started by asking him if the vote went the way he thought it would.
