10th May 1989 - Schizophrenia After-Care Bill in parliament

In the parliamentary record, Hansard, it can be seen on 10th May 1989 that the Schizophrenia After-Care Bill was moved by Lord Mottistone and discussed in the House of Lords. The draft legislation had been put together by Lord Mottistone and the charity Rethink. The proposed legislation, aimed at improving aftercare by making responsibilities clear, was passed in the House of Lords but defeated in the House of Commons.

This bill is mentioned in the Rethink Mental Illness Timeline and Hansard.

Rethink say that despite this defeat, the bill moved schizophrenia up the public agenda.
