Many of the points raised are covered in the substantive text above. However, some of the points did not fall neatly within our headings and we propose, in this chapter, to address the outstanding points with which the Review Group is in agreement.`

`Learning disability and the law Persons with learning disability complained to the Review Group about the inclusion of learning disability in the Act.
