The joint parliamentary committee which is looking into the issue of doctor-assisted death is due to meet for the first time next Monday.

A list has been released of 11 MPs who will sit on the panel.

They include six Liberals, three Conservatives and two New Democrats –  all of whom will join five senators – who were named to the panel earlier.

Three of those senators are Conservatives and two are independent Liberals.

The panel will consult Canadians on how to bring in a new law on doctor-assisted dying –  that addresses constitutional issues raised in a landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling last year.

The high court has reserved its decision – on a federal government request for more time to bring in a new law.
