Motion text

That this House welcomes the Government's decision to subject the draft Mental Health Bill to pre-legislative scrutiny; hopes that the scrutiny process will lead to a much improved Mental Health Bill being presented to Parliament in due course; congratulates the Mental Health Alliance on its continuing work to help influence the Bill; and agrees with the Alliance that any future Mental Health Act must provide a legal right to assessment, care and treatment and that people who have a mental disorder should only be put under compulsion as a last resort and when they have lost the ability to make decisions for themselves.
