On 5 December 2017 the Government approved the publication for public consultation purposes of preliminary draft Heads of Bill to form Part 13 of the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) (ADMC) Act, 2015. On 8 December 2017 the Department of Health launched a public consultation on this draft legislation, which was published along with a consultation paper, ‘Deprivation of Liberty: Safeguard Proposals’, on the Department’s website. The views of the public were sought on all aspects of the draft Heads of Bill, as well as on specific questions detailed in the consultation paper, in order to inform the further development of the legislative provisions.

 

Comprised of 14 chapters, Part II of the report details the findings of the public consultation. Chapters 1–13 are correlated with Heads 1–13 of the draft Heads of Bill. Each chapter commences with a brief summary of the provisions of the Head prior to setting out the responses to the questions detailed in the consultation paper. The responses to each question are grouped under sub-headings reflecting the emerging themes. Chapter 14 of the report details the responses to the 3 general questions posed at the end of the consultation paper.
