Sep 2008 | Mental Capacity and Guardianship Bill

In September 2008, the Government approved Ministerial proposals for a Mental Capacity and Guardianship Bill Bill to repeal and replace the Lunacy Regulation (Ireland) Act 1871 and re-enact the provisions of the Powers of Attorney Act 1996.

The Bill seeks to reform the existing Wards of Court system and replace it with a statutory framework governing decision making on behalf of persons who lack capacity.
