The Government must bring back the Domestic Abuse Bill with a provision to stop spouses convicted of violence against their partners from claiming money in divorce proceedings.
Gloria De Piero campaigned to end this injustice and we’ll keep pushing the Government for action.
It’s vital the survivors of domestic abuse are given the resources they need to escape safely and recover. The bill, which was put on hold due to the election, is an important step towards giving survivors the support they deserve.
I recently questioned the Government on this in Parliament – you can watch my question here.
