My right hon. Friend is so right about why we are here today to discuss the Bill. I, too, pay tribute to my hon. Friend Rosie Duffield, who spoke so eloquently and emotively. Does my right hon. Friend agree that one reason why we cannot get to grips with this issue is that the resources and support for the support network—the wonderful women’s charities and domestic abuse charities—have dwindled and been taken away? If we do not support them, they cannot support the women who need their support.
