Offence of non-fatal strangulation

Part of Domestic Abuse Bill – in a Public Bill Committee on 16th June 2020.

Alert me about debates like this

A person (A) commits an offence if that person unlawfully strangles, suffocates or asphyxiates another person (B), where the strangulation, suffocation or asphyxiation does not result in B’s death.”

This new clause will create a new offence of non-fatal strangulation.—(Jess Phillips.)
