Lord Pannick: I understand the noble Earl’s concern that if there is an obligation to report the results, that might have an effect on the common law Bolam test, but surely it would not, because of the contents of Clause 2(1), which states: “Nothing in section 1 … affects any rule of the common law to the effect that a departure from the existing range of accepted medical treatments for a...

Baroness Berridge: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, and to the Minister for supporting the Bill. I shall deal with a couple of points that were raised.

Secondly, on mens rea, I made specific...
