New measures announced to combat forced marriage

The Home Secretary Sajid Javid has announced a package of measures to tackle forced marriage. As part of this, a public consultation will be launched to determine whether there should be a mandatory requirement for professionals to report a forced marriage case to the authorities. This will help identify:

  • which professionals the duty would apply to
  • the specific circumstances where a case would have to be reported
  • potential sanctions for failure to comply with the duty
