Amendment 754 seeks to introduce a new section that will provide that, where a patient is detained under section 56, following short-term detention and the making of an application to the tribunal, the tribunal must either grant an interim compulsory treatment order or determine the application before the five-day period of detention expires. Amendment 345 will insert a reference to that new section in section 53A, which provides the tribunal with a power to grant interim compulsory treatment orders.
