Defects in the Working of the Lunacy Act, 1890

  • R. Percy Smith (a1)
Extract

I feel greatly honoured by being allowed to open a discussion on the working of this Act; but as Bethlem admits more private cases in the year than any other institution in the kingdom, and as the chief alterations in the law concern the admission of private patients, it is perhaps appropriate that the discussion should be opened by someone resident at Bethlem. I feel I cannot do this better than by bringing before your notice facts which have occurred, and if in doing this I weary you, it will be merely a small reflection of the weariness we have experienced in the last six months from this new law.
