A conversation between
Queen's Counsel and a psychiatrist
(a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians) about the M'Naghten Rules
At the trial of Daniel M'Naghten for murder in 1843 many medical men stated their opinion that M'Naghren had committed the act in question under the influence of a morbid delusion which deprived him of all power of self-control. The case was stopped and the prisoner found Not Guilty. The House of Lords thereafter asked the judges to answer certain questions on the state of the law relating to crimes committed by persona supposed to be insane. The judges' statement of the position has been known since as the M'Naghten Rules. The question now asked is whether the advance in the study of clinical psychiatry and medical psychology has rendered a reform of these Rules desirable.
