    The reason the right honourable gentleman doesn't "give a f***" is because the right honourable gentleman is ideologically driven. Cannibalism is barbaric and disgusting act and has no place in modern society. It should be banned.
    Isn't it a shame that this 'ideologically driven' member can actually justify why this bill shouldn't be enacted as supposed to your support of it that amounts to 'ew'?

    Let's see. Cannibalism, is horrific.
    Should it be banned? Yes.
    Need I elaborate on that? No.

    Whilst it is a disgusting practice, upon thinking about and discussing the issue I would support its legality under two conditions. Firstly, it would need to be undergone by mentally stable adults. Secondly, any health ramifications should certainly not be covered by the National Health Service and other people's money. Consequently, I believe this bill puts subjective morality above individual freedom where the individual consents to an act that does not hurt anybody else, making this bill a misuse of the state.

    Nay.

    I thank the honourable gentleman for supporting this bill. I ask the honourable gentleman how much tougher the punishment should be?

    I would make the suggestion to the honourable gentleman that a mandatory life sentence is definitely a considerable penalty.

    I completely disagree with this and it is hugely disappointing that people are not considering possible unintended consequences of this.

    No. I have no reason to ban it as I don't think this is a problem facing our country and I feel that we should always err on the side of giving people maximum freedom where there is no need to do otherwise.
    This, it's a nay from me

    Aye, though I would have the same sentences as murder. I'd also be specific to make it an offence to aid any animal from eating human flesh.

    I concur with my colleague on this. I hope mr T 999 acknowledges this and makes amendments accordingly.

    if an individual consents to being cannibalised, (google armin meiwes) there is no reason for the state to intervene.

    Even if the person being consumed wasn't murdered?
