§ Baroness Cumberlege
My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to make provision for certain mentally disordered patients in England and Wales to receive after-care under supervision after leaving hospital; to provide for the making of community care orders in the case of certain mentally disordered patients in Scotland; to amend the law relating to mentally disordered patients absent without leave or on leave of absence from hospital; and for connected purposes. I beg to move that this Bill be now read a first time.
