One of the few concrete commitments given in the Government’s response to the Select Committee’s post-legislative scrutiny report, available here, related to amending the Court of Protection Rules:

“9.2 The Government has committed to taking forward the revision of the Court of Protection Rules and had previously agreed with the President of the Court of Protection that we would await the outcomes from the House of Lords Report prior to commencing the work. Following the publication of the Report, the President has written to the Lord Chancellor regarding the formation of the Rules Committee. It is our intention to have the new Rules in place by April 2015.”

That Committee is now in the process of formation and beginning its work; we will keep you abreast of developments as and when we can.
