The Law Commission’s consultation paper, Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty has now been published. The paper can be accessed on The Law Commission’s website: http://www.lawcom.gov.uk/project/mental-capacity-and-deprivation-of-liberty/#related. The consultation paper reviews the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (the DoLS) in England and Wales. The Law Commission’s goal is to replace the DoLS with a straightforward and accessible legal framework which provides appropriate safeguards for people who lack capacity whose care or treatment is becoming restrictive.
