The pilot of integrated domestic abuse courts will be subject to a full evaluation, including in relation to its impact on children involved in family proceedings where domestic abuse is a factor. We have already announced in the Budget that £5 million has been allocated to this pilot over the coming financial year, and we will announce more detailed proposals shortly.
