Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq started his speech with a reference to his previous addresses.
He said he's had the equivalent of three sermons on the mount, which lasted about 15 minutes.
He has already come out firmly opposed to assisted dying, the proposals for which he describes as "empty promises".
Resources are his main concern, and Mr Le Tocq says "we cannot do everything as well as we should".
"Assisted dying is at best undeliverable and at worst will sap up resources that could be used elsewhere," he added.
He described the assisted dying proposals as "new risks".
He added the saddest thing about the debate was the "vast majority" of the examples given of people looking for assisted dying would not qualify for assisted dying, which he says means the safeguards put forward would not be upheld.
