Welcome to another week.

Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she will be looking to create a Domestic Violence and Abuse Act, in order to help victims of domestic abuse who are currently being let down by the legal system.

It is not yet clear what the Act will contain term-wise, whether it will address abuse at the hands of both men and women, and whether evidence gathering and the difficulties surrounding this area will be tackled, however experts will be invited to contribute ideas and suggestions in the near future.

Unusually for a Prime Minister, May has elected to directly oversee the work, which is set to be cross-governmental, though co-ordinated by the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice.

So our question this week then, is just this: what would you like the Act to address?
