This submission was prepared in an individual capacity, by Professor David Jones, Director of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre, at the request of the Department of Christian Responsibility and Citizenship of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.

It sets out a Catholic understanding of the ethical principles relevant to the evaluation of end-of-life care.

It explains the concerns that generated the call, by Archbishop Peter Smith, Chair of the Department for Citizenship and Responsibility, for an inquiry into the implementation of the Pathway and identifies empirical questions that need to be answered in order to address these concerns.
