I have sent a number of papers to the Scottish Government in order to make clear why it is necessary to conduct a wide review of Scottish mental health and incapacity legislation. So far the Scottish Government has given me no hint that it is willing for that wide review to take place. Nor has it attempted to refute the arguments which I have been making in support of there being a wide review.

In addition, I have provided the Scottish Government with a paper entitled "Important Court Judgments 2". This paper contains details of many court judgments together with a brief explanation of their significance for Scottish mental health and incapacity legislation. These judgments include judgments of the European Court of Human Rights.  These help to clarify the scope of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
