This Order is the twelfth commencement order made under the Mental Health Act 2007 (“the 2007 Act”) and brings into force on 1st December 2017 the provisions set out in Article 2 of this Order. These provisions rename certain judicial offices in the Mental Health Review Tribunal for Wales by amending the Mental Health Act 1983 (“the 1983 Act”). Specifically, they rename the role of “chairman” of the Tribunal as “president” and, where the term “president” as it is currently used under the 1983 Act to refer to the chair of a Tribunal constituted for particular proceedings, it is replaced with “chairman”.
