The Domestic Abuse Bill has been back in the House of Commons recently, with MPs voting on the amendments suggested by the House of Lords. These amendments included placing serial stalkers and domestic violence perpetrators on the current violent and sexual offenders register and monitored the same way that serious sex offenders are. Other amendments voted against include mandatory training on domestic abuse and sexual violence for all Family Court judges and migrant victims of domestic abuse being allowed to apply for temporary leave to remain.
After the death of Sarah Everard, the Government pledged to take action to tackle violence against women and girls. All but two Conservative MPs voted against these amendments.
