In respect of migrant victims of domestic abuse we have committed to undertake a review into the Government’s overall response and this work began over the summer period. The review will specifically consider the recommendations made by the Joint Committee on Domestic Abuse following their pre-legislative scrutiny of the Domestic Abuse Bill.
