LABOUR GAIN

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

  • Introduced the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act


This marked the biggest overhaul of domestic violence legislation for 30 years.


This Labour Gain fits in well with the start of the 16 days of action for the elimination of Domestic Violence against women. The Outrage conference in Renfrewshire on Wednesday was the hopefully the start of a Renfrewshire Wide consciousness on this issue. The Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act also covers domestic violence by women on men which is equally as serious, I was grateful to be invited on Wednesday and delighted to be there a big congratulations should go to all of the organisers for a very successful day.
