I think that I will misinterpret the hon. Lady a little further. She seems to be suggesting that, because we are changing the definition of mental disorder, each disorder in the ICD 10 list—a long list, as the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham said—would suddenly fall under the Act and therefore everyone might be up for detention. The truth is that the vast majority of those several different layers, both organic and other conditions that are termed in the ICD 10 list as mental disorders, would not be recommended for detention at all.
