The title, “27a”, refers to an act of Queensland parliament that allowed mental institutions to hold their “patients” indefinitely until that person can prove their fitness for release. An alcoholic is sentenced to 6 weeks prison for a minor offence. As an alternative to prison, he is offered treatment at a mental hospital.
