HC Deb 13 March 1929 vol 226 cc1142-3W

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to the fact that, owing to a recent High Court case, medical men will not run the risk of certifying insane people; and does he propose to introduce legislation to deal with this situation, which is inimical to the best interests of the afflicted persons and the public?


My right hon. Friend's attention has been drawn to this case. He hopes that any legislation which may be introduced to amend the Lunacy Laws will include a provision giving effect to the recommendation on this point of the Royal Commission on Lunacy and Mental Disorder.
