House of Commons
THE ISTANBUL CONVENTION AND RAPE CRISIS SERVICES
EDM #2328
Tabled 25 April 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that despite signing up to the Istanbul Convention in 2012, the UK has failed to enshrine the Convention in law; further notes that the Convention stipulates necessary legislative or other measures to ensure that survivors have access to services facilitating their recovery from sexual violence; welcomes the fact that the public petition brought by campaigner Fern Champion on the issue of funding for Rape Crisis specialist services has attracted more than 150,000 signatures; and calls on the Government to bring forward legislation to enshrine the Istanbul Convention in UK law.
