A rigged 'Commission'

Controversy now rages around Lord (Charlie) Falconer's 'Commission on Assisted Dying,' [here]  funded by the science fiction writer Terry Pratchett, himself tragically suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's Disease, and also backed by the campaign group "Dignity in Dying." [see here]
But there is only one question which needs to be asked to be able to determine this committee's legitimacy and its claim to impartiality. Can anyone conceive of a situation in which the "Commission's" final report could recommend that the law remain unchanged?
I thought not.
End of story.
