New Clause 1 — Excluded decisions
Orders of the Day — Mental Capacity Bill
Mr Gerald Kaufman (Manchester, Gorton, Labour)
May I suggest that if that is the calibre of the Minister's interventions today, he would do better to remain seated? May I make this point to Mr. Duncan Smith, which has been illustrated by my hon. Friend Mrs. Curtis-Thomas? It is one thing for a person to signify an advance wish when they are articulate, but a time may come when they are no longer articulate although their mental activity is as strong as it was and they want to change their mind. The Bill before the House slams the door on that change of mind.
