For British Health Minister Matt Hancock, going abroad for assisted suicide is a valid reason to leave the UK during the Covid-19 curfew.
The British Suicide Act 1961 forbids helping or encouraging others to die. The question was brought up by “Conservative” MP Andrew Mitchell who presented the case of a woman, 45, with breast cancer who anticipated her suicide in Switzerland for fear that the curfew would prevent it.
The Swiss authorities graciously dispensed her from Covid-19 quarantine before she entered the death clinic. Since November 5, Brits cannot leave home without a reasonable excuse.
