The article focuses on the possibility that no mental health reform bill will be introduced in the 2006 parliamentary session in Great Britain and that the 1983 act will be reformed. Minister Rosie Winterton declined to confirm that a legislation would be introduced in the session. The government still hopes that a bill would be introduced. One of the factors that hinder the legislation of a new bill is its ability to pass a race equality impact assessment.
