To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 10 September 2020 to Question 86063 on Domestic Abuse: Victims, when the Government plan to publish their findings into changes in the Policing and Crime Act 2017 relating to pre-charge bail conditions.

This question was answered on 18th November 2020

The Government consultation on the pre charge bail system closed on 29 May, receiving over 1,000 responses. Officials are continuing to engage with key stakeholders from across the criminal justice sector on reforms to the pre-charge bail process and the Government remains committed to improving the effectiveness of this system. We are planning to publish our response to the consultation in early 2021.

Pre-charge bail, including the use of conditions to protect domestic abuse and other victims, continues to be available where it is necessary and proportionate.
