Urgent call for Independent Inquiry into the treatment of Domestic Abuse in Family Court

125 cross party MPs, led by Labour's Louise Haigh, wrote to the Ministry of Justice demanding an independent inquiry into the failure of the family courts to protect victims of abuse and their children from domestic abuse.

Disappointingly the MoJ responded by saying that they would hold a snap (12 week) Inquiry but that it would not be independent. Retired senior Family Judge Sir Paul Coleridge remarked on the Victoria Derbyshire programme that they would discover nothing meaningful in just 12 weeks due to the complexity of domestic abuse.
