HC Deb 13 July 1960 vol 626 cc114-5W
Mr. Mathew

asked the Attorney-General, in view of the doubt that exists, if he will introduce legislation to enable the Master of the Court of Protection to give information as to the personal affairs of mental patients in his care to the parents or next-of-kin in appropriate cases.

The Attorney-General

The court already has power to give information about a patient's affairs to other persons in proper cases; legislation, therefore, is not needed.
