HC Deb 01 July 1992 vol 210 cc576-7W
Mrs. Golding

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department when he expects the Law Commission to publish its proposals relating to the adequacy of legal and other procedures for decision-making on behalf of mentally incapacitated adults.

Mr. John M. Taylor

The Law Commission published its consultation paper "Mentally Incapacitated Adults and Decision Making: an Overview" on 30 April 1991. That paper produced a large number of responses in the light of which the commission is now considering its future programme of work on this topic and may undertake further consultation before publishing any final proposals.
