LGA statement on Queen’s Speech: Mental Health Act Reform Bill
"The LGA supports the reforms to the Mental Health Act, particularly the objective to give people a stronger say in their treatment and the intention to address rising rates of detention of people from ethnic minority backgrounds."
The LGA worked extensively with Members of Parliament and Peers during the passage of the Environment Bill to provide information and research on implications for local government, support with the drafting and tabling of amendments, influence decision makers to secure favourable outcomes for councils and garner cross-party support for amendments that were in the interest of local government.
