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.
The next step in the Stage 1 process is for the Health and Sport Committee to issue a "call for evidence" which invites views on the Bill from stakeholders. The Committee issued its call for evidence on Friday June 27, 2014.
Further updates on the Bill's progress through the parliamentary process will be provided as and when there is something to report.
