Doctorsplea oversuicides PDOCTORS were today set to call for relatives who travel with terminally ill people to suicide clinics abroad not to face prosecution when they return home. The British Medical Association was voting at its conference on whether to back plans for immunity for those accompanying patients who die by assisted suicide, which is illegal in the UK. PTHE QUEEN has approved a peerage for controversial former Commons Speaker Michael Martin. In a message to Parliament, the monarch said she wishes to confer on Mr Martin some signal mark of her royal favour. It came after MPs sent her an address praising him for his eminent services during the period in which he has, with such distinguished ability and dignity presided in the Chair of this House. But the Lords Appointments Commission is understood to have raised concerns with Gordon Brown that ennobling Mr Martin could damage the reputation of the Upper Chamber. Mr Martin was the first Speaker to be hounded out of office for more than 300 years, as a result of his handling of the parliamentary expenses scandal. In a letter to the Prime Minister, the commission did not recommend that Mr Martin should be blocked from becoming a peer, but it is understood to have highlighted its remit which includes to advise the Prime Minister if it has any concerns about the propriety of a nominee.

Get off my lawn and back on your Nintendo What really happened to elvis TRANSPORT Secretary Lord Adonis moved to nationalise one of Britains main rail services today and threatened to seize control of two more. He stepped in after National Express said it would walk away from its loss-making East Coast franchise by the end of the year. Lord Adonis said he had set up a publicly-owned company to run it and that the Government could terminate National Expresss other rail franchises. Department for Transport lawyers are examining whether to seek to take over East Anglia which runs all Liverpool Street trains. National Express announced that its chief executive Richard Bowker, a former boss of the defunct Strategic Rail Authority, was leaving to take up a railway job in the Middle East. The firm is expected to announce losses of more than 20m for the first half of the year. It ran into trouble after bidding 1.4bn over 10 years for the deal to run the East Coast services from London to York and Scotland. Lord Adonis also signalled that National Express was highly unlikely to win another rail franchise. He said: It is simply unacceptable to reap the benefits of contracts when times are good, only to walk away from them when times become more challenging.
