EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Rules)

Subsections (3), (5), (7) and (9) of section 38 of the Mental Health Act 2007 (c.12) rename certain judicial offices in the Mental Health Review Tribunal for Wales by amending the Mental Health Act 1983 (“the 1983 Act”). Specifically, they rename the role of “chairman” of the Tribunal as “president” and, where the term “president” as it is currently used under the 1983 Act to refer to the chair of a Tribunal constituted for particular proceedings, it is replaced with “chairman”. These amendments are brought into force by the Mental Health Act 2007 (Commencement No.12 and Transitional Provisions) Order 2017 (S.I. 1038, C. 95) on 1st December 2017.

The amendments made by this instrument change the references in the Mental Health Review Tribunal for Wales Rules 2008 (S.I.2705) to the chairman and president of the Mental Health Review Tribunal consequential on the coming into force of those provisions.

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
