Regina (Hertfordshire County Council) v Hammersmith and Fulham London Borough Council – WLR Daily

“A  mental patient who was compulsorily detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 was not thereby to be treated as ‘resident’ in the local authority within whose area he was detained. On a proper construction of section 117(3) of the 1983 Act the patient’s ‘residence’ was distinct from his place of detention. Section 117 of the 1983 Act was the appropriate section, rather than section 21 of the National Assistance Act 1948, to determine which authority should have the responsibility of paying for the patient’s after-care accommodation.”
WLR Daily, 16th February 2011

Please note once a case has been fully reported in one of the ICLR series the corresponding WLR Daily summary is removed.
