The government had argued it needed the February 6 deadline extended by six months to draw up a proper law.
In addition to the four-month extension, the high court’s granted an exemption for anybody who wants to apply to the courts to seek an assisted death in the meantime.

“On the one hand I’m disappointed for individuals who are suffering right now.  They’ve now got a process to go through, but at least they have an extension.”
Meanwhile, the joint parliamentary committee of 16 MPs and senators, set up to study the issue is to hold its first meeting Monday.
