Queensland is today set to become the fifth state to legalise voluntary assisted dying, despite pushback from prominent state MPs.

MPs will today give a conscience vote on the legislation, after debate began on Tuesday.

Katter Australia Party Leader Robbie Katter tabled an amendment, seeking $275 million to be committed to improving regional palliative care.

Member for Buderim Brent Mickelberg told Neil Breen Mr Katter’s concerns didn’t sway his support for the bill.

“Absolutely we need to do more to invest in palliative care but … I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive.”
