Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether his Department plans to review the penalties for breach of a restraining order where that order was issued following proven domestic violence.
The maximum penalty for breach of a restraining order is 5 years in prison. There are no current plans to increase this though we are determined to do more to tackle Domestic Abuse more broadly as set out in the Queen’s Speech.
