I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. We had an Adjournment debate on domestic violence only a few months ago, where the Solicitor-General acknowledged the role of Southall Black Sisters. There was to be a judicial review of that group's funding, and she assured the House that funding would be the Government's main consideration on domestic violence. I hope that after tonight's debate, there will be further funding and that the issue of resources will be resolved.
