Mental Health Bill [HL] — Treatability test. — 19 Feb 2007 at 18:43

The mental health bill is largely being used to amend the 1983 Mental Health Act. This is therefore an amendment to a bill to amend that Act.

The Bill proposed an addition of a somewhat tautological clause stating that appropriate treatment was treatment which is "appropriate in his case" taking all things into account.

This amendment, accepted by the Lords, made things marginally clearer by defining appropriate treatment as "likely to alleviate or prevent a deterioration in his condition."

The fundamental aim being that the patient himself should be better off after the intervention rather than just contained.

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 186; Not-Contents, 115.
