Mental Health (Scotland) Bill

The Mental Health (Scotland) Bill has been introduced to the Scottish Parliament. The Parliamentary Bureau has designated the Health and Sport Committee as the lead Committee for this Bill. The referral of the Bill to a lead Committee means that Stage 1 of the parliamentary process has begun.

Stage 1

The Committee is now taking oral evidence on the Bill. The official report for the Committee meeting on September 30, 2014 is available on the Scottish Parliament website. The second oral evidence session will be held on October 7, 2014.
