MPs debated the second reading of the Domestic Abuse Bill in the House of Commons on 2 October 2019.
The Secretary of State for Justice, Robert Buckland, opened the debate on behalf of the Government. Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, Carolyn Harris, responded on behalf of the Opposition. The Bill passed second reading without a division and now progresses to Committee stage.
A carry-over motion was also passed meaning that, if necessary, the Bill can continue its passage through Parliament in the next Parliamentary session.
