Question to the Ministry of Justice
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether he has received representations on the availability of independent domestic violence advisers to attend court in areas where the local court has recently closed.
Answer (Lucy Frazer)
Whilst the Secretary of State for Justice has not specifically received any representations on the availability of independent domestic violence advisors in areas where the local court has recently closed, HM Courts and Tribunal Service conducts public consultations when court closures are proposed. These consultations seek views from court users, including those providing victim support services and prior to making a decision on court closures the Secretary of State takes into account the responses received before deciding how to proceed.
