§ 37. Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
asked the Minister of Health whether he has had his attention called to the remarks of a High Court Judge on 27th April in giving judgment on a recent case, in which he pointed out the hardship 17 created by the existing state of the law, and expressed regret at the decision he was thereby compelled to reach; and whether he contemplates the introduction of legislation to secure that in future a sane man detained in an asylum shall not be effectively prevented from bringing an action until it is too late to succeed?
I do not at the moment contemplate the introduction of legislation in this matter, but the points to which the hon. Member refers are receiving consideration.
