Mr Brown said his work to bring about changes to legislation to protect women from domestic abuse has helped him deal with the grief felt over his daughter's death.
But he insisted that more could be done to protect women from abusive men, including improved use of the police national computer to identify potential abusers.I’d love to see what criteria they plan to use for that!
Do we have any bald, floating psychics stashed at Home Office HQ..?
Salford and Eccles MP Hazel Blears said: "The fact there have been almost 4,000 applications shows just how serious a problem domestic violence is in this country and two women a week are killed by a current or former partner. We should be looking to protect those who could be at risk of abuse wherever it is safe and appropriate to do so.
"We should also be gathering evidence about how often disclosures lead to people ending their relationship, and ensuring they are then getting all the support they need at that point."Oh, fabulous!
Just chucked your boyfriend because the police check came back positive? Don’t worry! Someone from the government will come round with a crappy DVD & a bottle of wine and listen to you tell them you were too good for that bastard anyway…
