No power which a person ('D') may exercise under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 in relation to a person ('P') who lacks capacity, or where D reasonably thinks that a person lacks capacity, is exercisable in relation to a person under 161. However matters relating to P's property and affairs might be exercised where P is under 16 if the court thinks it likely P will still lack capacity in respect of that matter when he reaches 182.
There is no age limit relating to the offence of ill-treatment or neglect of P3.
