Motion text

That this House is alarmed to note that every year about 3 million women in the United Kingdom experience violence, which alone costs the nation over £40 billion per annum, is aware that the Equality and Human Rights Commission, the End Violence Against Women Campaign, Amnesty International UK and a range of other like-minded organisations have published a new Map of Gaps Report which highlights inadequate services provisions available in certain areas of Britain for women who experience rape, forced marriage, domestic or other violence; and calls upon the Government to take action to fill such gaps to ensure that women who find themselves in violent situations are given the necessary level of support they need.
