Report No. 196
The learned Judge agreed with Munby J where he had stated as follows:
"Article 2 does not entitle anyone to continue life-prolonging treatment where to do so would expose the patient to 'inhuman or degrading treatment' breaching Art. 3. On the other hand, a withdrawal of life-prolonging treatment which satisfies the exacting requirements of the common law, including a proper application of the intolerability test, and in a manner which is in all other respects compatible with the patient's rights under Art. 3 and Art. 8 will not, in my judgment, give rise to breach of Art. 2"
