I led a debate today on Domestic Abuse and Homelessness. The evidence of the overlap between the two issues is clear, the gap in protection obvious and I am campaigning for an amendment to the Domestic Abuse Bill to guarantee more help for people fleeing abuse. The Minister’s response today was poor but I am hopeful we will win the campaign as the legislation progresses!
