The Mental Health Act: consider repealing most powers of coercion

Nick Clegg promised that the government would "repeal" all of "the intrusive and unnecessary laws that inhibit people's freedom".  Many of us rejoiced prematurely, wrongly anticipating the imminent repeal of the illiberal powers contained in the hated Mental Health Act.  The Act confers powers that most of the public don't seem to realise are present in the Act, to impose unwanted mental health services on ordinary people who aren't a danger to anybody, and who communicate, with full mental capacity, clear advance directives refusing all mental health services.  
 
Will the government please initiate a consultation of mental health service users, past and present, including all those who have ever been sectioned, and those who are only compliant with unwanted treatment because they have been threatened with being sectioned if they do not comply?  Will he promise that the repeal of Mental Health Act's powers of coercion will not be ruled out from the outset of this consultation?

Why is this idea important?
