Violence Against Women (9 Mar 2006)

Chris McCafferty: I am sure that my hon. Friend agrees that women need allies among politicians, religious leaders and health professionals.

Much of the time that they have spent caring has been before the introduction of home responsibilities protection and credits. Will he ensure...
