MENTAL HEALTH – 15 December 1997

Dr Julian Lewis: As the question refers to violence against women, will the right hon. Lady join me in condemning the conduct of Labour Front and Back Benchers last Friday? They spent no less than five hours talking out a Bill that was supported by every leading mental health charity and which would have prevented rape of female in-patients in psychiatric units. Does she support or condemn those tactics?
