Mental Health (Discrimination) (No. 2) Bill 2012-13

We’ve been following the progress of this bill at Westminster which removes the discrimination that prevents some people with mental illness being an MSP or MP.

The final reading in the Lords took place on 11th February (text of bill discussed can be read here http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/lbill/2012-2013/0062/20130062.pdf) and the bill is now heading for Royal Assent. Great news!
