Commons Select Committee examines Domestic Abuse Bill

On 17 July 2018 the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee will hear from experts on what measures should be included in the Domestic Abuse Bill.

The government set out its planned approach to the legislation in a consultation which has recently closed.

The Committee intends to explore not only what should be included in the Bill but also what other, non-legislative, policies should be pursued for the Government's strategy to be most effective. 

Topics also likely to be covered are:

The experts before the Committee in this session will be: Councillor Simon Blackburn, Chairman, LGA Safer and Stronger Communities Board, Local Government Association; Siân Hawkins, Head of Campaigns and Public Affairs, Women's Aid; Pragna Patel, Southall Black Sisters; Professor Jane Callaghan, Stirling University; Jane Gordon, Sisters for Change; and Deputy Chief Constable Louisa Rolfe, National Police Chiefs' Council.
