Cuts Watch #173: Domestic Violence Protection Orders

04 Aug 2010, by in Cuts Watch

The Home Secretary has cancelled plans to pilot Domestic Violence Protection Orders (also known as ‘Go’ orders). In the pilot areas (and eventually nationally) the police would have had the power to ban violent men from their homes temporarily – a period that would allow victims time to consider their options and to apply for longer-term protection.

According to The Independent, Mrs. May has cancelled the scheme to save money and “because of worries about the legislation setting up the orders” – even though this legislation had all-party support when it was passed.
