The Mental Hospitals Act 1942 also known as 'An Act to amend the Mental Hospitals Act 1858' (Act no. 6 Geo. VI No.27) amended the Mental Hospitals Act 1858 (Act no 22 Vict. No.23) by entering a clause whereby a person could be exempt from paying for the cost of admission to and provision of services by a Mental Hospital if the Minster feels demanding payment would be 'harsh or inequitable'. This act was repealed by Statute Law Revision Act 1958 (No.36) on 24 July 1958.
