Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) (Amendment) Bill 2019: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015 relating to treatment of patients under the Mental Health Act 2001 and the Criminal Law (Insanity) Act 2006; to improve the provision of mental health services; to promote the rights of persons subject to the Mental Health Act 2001 and the Criminal Law (Insanity) Act 2006; and to provide for related matters.

Is there a seconder?

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

That is difficult to know. It would usually be Tuesday, but could I say Wednesday?

Is that next Tuesday?

The Senator can nominate any date she likes.

I nominate 20 September.

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Friday, 20 September 2019.
