Question accordingly negatived.

Amendment made: 47, page 28, line 21, schedule 1, at end insert—

‘(1A) And, for the purposes of this Schedule, arrangements which relate to a person are “not in accordance with mental health requirements” if the person is subject to mental health requirements and the arrangements are not in accordance with them.”

This amendment is to make it clear that arrangements can be authorised under the new Schedule AA1 if there are no “mental health requirements” that apply in relation to the person who is to be subject to the arrangements.—(Caroline Dinenage.)
