We will publish an updated impact assessment alongside the re-introduction of the Domestic Abuse Bill.

As I indicated at Second Reading of the Bill in the last Parliament (Official Report, House of Commons, 2 October 2019, column 1331), we will prioritise the funding for the Bill in the 2020 Spending Review.
