HC Deb 06 December 1989 vol 163 cc276-7W
Mr. Hinchliffe

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if it is his intention to review the operation of the guardianship provisions of the Mental Health Act; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

We have no present plans for such a review, but will of course reconsider the need in the light of evidence to suggest that either the provisions, or the way they are put into operation, are inadequate.
