To ask the Scottish Government whether it plans to review the adults with incapacity legislation and, if so, what the timescale is and what consultation arrangements it is planning.

Answered by Paul Wheelhouse (12/11/2015):

We have committed to consulting on the Scottish Law Commission’s Report on Adults with Incapacity. The report covers compliance of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 with Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights, specifically in relation to deprivation of liberty issues. It is anticipated that a consultation paper will issue around the end of 2015, and it will be open to anyone with an interest to respond. Thereafter, a scoping exercise will follow in relation to a wider review of the adults with incapacity legislation.
