Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill

A parliamentary briefing gives an overview of the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill, and the debates and amendments made during the bill’s Lords stages, ahead of its second reading in the Commons on 18 December 2018.

The intention of the bill is to reform the process for authorising arrangements which enable people who lack capacity to consent to be deprived of their liberty for the purpose of providing them with care or treatment.
