Important moment this week as the Government introduced the Domestic Abuse Bill. After years of struggle on DV. I welcome the new definition of domestic abuse, legal duty to provide DV refuges for women fleeing their homes, the new DV Commissioner & extension of the Bill to victims in Northern Ireland. But what happens next is crucial. The Prime Minister will be gone next week. The new PM must commit to taking the Bill forward. I will be seeking amendments to increase government funding for refuges & to stop men who kill their wives or girlfriends evading murder charges by claiming ‘rough sex gone wrong’.
