Question

Clearly, this is not a London-only issue. One of the things the MPS does is lead the rest of the police service, as it has done, to get that ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) position. Will you be giving your commitment to lead the rest of the service nationally to ensure this matter stays at the top of the policing agenda because they are the first point of call for people in distress?

Chair, the Member is absolutely right, we have been leading the country on this, and I have to say it is the result of the outstanding work done by the Member who has put this question and others in this Assembly. We intend to be absolutely at the forefront in terms of leading activity on domestic violence. We lead in the country and we intend to keep that up, with your help.
