The Mental Capacity Act 2005 is limited to those persons lacking mental capacity1. It has been held that, in the absence of express reference in that Act to the High Court or to those adults whose ability to make decisions for themselves has been compromised by matters other than those covered by the Mental Capacity Act 2005, the High Court may intervene using its inherent jurisdiction2 and that there is a sound and strong public policy justification for the continued availability of this jurisdiction for this purpose3
