LPS update – back to the Lords on 24 April

The Parliament website now (11 April) tells us that the very slow motion game of Ping-Pong in the final stages of the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill continues, with the Bill returning to the Lords on 24 April.  At that point, the Lords will have to consider whether to accept the Government’s proposals (accepted by the Commons):

(1) Not to have a statutory definition of deprivation of liberty (other than the reference to Article 5 ECHR), and to have guidance in the LPS Code, to be reviewed regularly;

(2) In relation to the provision of information upon authorisation.
