Act Party leader David Seymour's voluntary euthanasia bill has cleared another stage in Parliament.

MPs voted 70 to 50 in favour of the End of Life Choice being given a third and final reading. But that was only after Mr Seymour introduced several amendments, including a requirement that doctors will not be able to suggest to patients they consider ending their lives.

David Seymour joins the Wellington studio to discuss the bill.
