Re McAdam (2010) COP 29/3/10
The donor had named X, one of two original attorneys (who had been appointed to act jointly and severally), as the only named person. On the application of the Public Guardian the court severed the appointment of X as attorney on the ground that the MCA does not permit an attorney to be a named person. The instrument was directed to be registered as an LPA appointing only the other attorney. (OPG summary - LPA case.)
The summary above was taken from the OPG website. Title: Re McAdam (an order of the Senior Judge made on 29 March 2010). Heading: Attorney or replacement attorney as a “named person”
