WINGS #23-12 Domestic Violence UK

The UK is running tests of a measure that would let police tell domestic violence victims if their spouse has a prior domestic violence record. Conservative women try to balance their party’s cuts against victims’ rights to legal aid, while Labour pushes against process changes and for fuller funding.

Labour Member of Parliament (MP) Hazel Blears moves “right to know” policy forward with help from Home Secretary Theresa May; Conservative MP Amber Rudd and Labour MP Kate Green disagree about changes in Legal Aid for Domestic Violence Victims.
