We were very pleased to receive a copy of a letter, sent to us by Mr E. He was one of the carers in the case HL v United Kingdom 2004, most commonly known as the Bournewood judgment. In the letter to members of the House of Lords, Mr and Mrs E have made their concerns very clear about the risk to vulnerable people if LPS becomes law in its current form. With Mr E’s kind permission, we are happy to provide a copy of his letter (via the link below) to further inform the debate about LPS from a very real and practical perspective.
