Robert Buckland, MP for South Swindon, today visited 10 Downing Street to take part in a reception supporting International Women’s Day.
The reception marked the increasing efforts to eliminate violence against women and girls at home and abroad.
Representatives from organisations such as The Survivors Trust, the White Ribbon Campaign and the Network for Surviving Stalking attended the event.
Robert, pictured far left, said: “I am delighted that the Government have accepted the recommendations of the All Party inquiry of which I was an active member, to help protect women and girls from violence.
“There is no doubt that these changes, together with better training for police and prosecutors and more emphasis on monitoring the risks posed by repeat offenders, will help the victims and potential victims of this serious crime.”
