MP on new plan

MID Derbyshire MP Pauline Latham has welcomed an announcement by the Government which has said that four police forces will pilot a new domestic violence disclosure scheme.

The scheme will test the methods used by police to help victims or potential victims of domestic violence by disclosing information about previous violent offending by their partner.

Mrs Latham said: “We need to do all we can to protect women who are vulnerable to domestic violence.”
