Re HS

Power of attorney – Enduring power of attorney. The Court of Protection reconsidered two orders it had made on the papers. The first was an order revoking HS's enduring power of attorney, in which she had appointed her former partner to be her attorney, and the second was an order appointing the local authority to be HS's deputy for property and affairs. The court held that, in the circumstances, the appointment of the local authority as deputy had been inapt and the appointment of a panel deputy would be completely disproportionate. An order was made appointing HS's son to be his mother's deputy, in place of the authority.
