Home Affairs Committee urge Government to widen forthcoming bill on Domestic Abuse
The Home Affairs Committee say national refuge funding, a new stalkers register, and an end to single Universal Credit Payments should be part of new Government Bill on Domestic Abuse.
The report published today, identifies persistent problems with lack of refuge and advice support for victims, weaknesses in the police and court response, and inadequate action to prevent abuse of all kinds. The committee calls for stronger action on what is one of the most common and the most dangerous crimes we face.
The report also urges the Government to widen it to be a Violence against Women and Girls and Domestic Abuse Bill.
