The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Justice announced in October 2012 that the Public Guardian would begin a fundamental review of deputy supervision. Deputies are appointed by the Court of Protection to protect people who lack mental capacity and are supervised by the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG).
This report is to inform Parliament of the findings of the review and to explain what OPG will do as a result.
