Suspected domestic abusers could be electronically tagged under government proposals for England and Wales.

The draft Domestic Abuse Bill will also propose tougher sentences where children are involved and more support for victims who testify in court.
There is a new definition of economic abuse - if people are denied access to jobs or money, or forced to take loans.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the bill could "completely transform the way we tackle domestic abuse".

Proposed Domestic Abuse Protection Orders (DAPOs) would allow police and courts to intervene earlier where abuse is suspected.
The orders would allow courts to electronically monitor suspects' whereabouts before they have been found guilty of - or even committed - a crime.

DAPOs would bring together elements from existing protective orders, while giving courts the power to set a wider range of restrictions and for longer periods than the current 28 days.

Other measures being considered include:
- The creation of an independent domestic abuse commissioner
- Giving domestic abuse victims the same status in court as those who have suffered modern slavery or sex offences
- Putting into law the scheme where police can disclose information about previous violent offending by a new or existing partner

It is estimated that almost two million adults in England and Wales have been victims of domestic abuse in the past year while 95 women and men were killed by current or former partners in 2016-17.


Domestic abuse 'not just physical attacks'
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: "It is appalling that in 21st-Century Britain, nearly two million people every year - the majority of them women - suffer abuse at the hands of those closest to them."

Speaking to Radio 4's Today programme Ms Rudd said the new definition of economic abuse would help prosecute perpetrators of domestic violence, who raid their victims' bank accounts or force them to take out loans.

She added that judges prescribing "early intervention initiatives" such as alcohol treatment programmes for abusers could stop "behaviour early on".

On International Women's Day she said: "If we want to be really ambitious about equality, ambitious about protecting women, this is exactly the sort of change we need to take head on."

Women's Aid chief executive Katie Ghose welcomed "the spotlight and recognition" of economic abuse.

She said domestic abuse was about "power and control"

She added: "It can take all forms, it can be everything from taking charge of someone's wages, restricting their movements, right through to committing benefit fraud in their name."
'Radical change'

Ms Ghose said financial control can sometimes be a precursor to physical and sexual violence.
But she cautioned the "ambition will be undermined if there is not a long-term, sustainable funding plan for refuges in place".

Suzanne Jacob, chief executive of domestic abuse charity SafeLives, said: "We welcome the focus on the urgent need to hold perpetrators to account and to prioritise the needs and safety of women and girls.
"The time for piecemeal sticking plasters is over, we need radical change."
The consultation period for the draft bill will run until 31 May.

Nothing personal mate, but this has got to be a contender for this weeks stupidest post.

Way over the top. Perhaps just dealing with the issues that arise instead of turning a blind eye would be a better start point?

Looks like another stout unqualified stick for the lefties to beat us with...

Cliche I know, but nobody knew anything. He wasnt knocking her about. They were just a normal couple. Everyone is in shock and it happened months ago. 2 kids as well have basically lost both parents in a flash.

He had no previous. From what i know no weapon used. Basically beat her and left her. Found hours later.

Having to explain it to my ten yr old daughter was mind blowing.

Bloody hell that is terrible.
It is difficult to know what is going on too. A friend of mine was close, she was the one of the most outgoing people I have met and turned up at a party with a new boyfriend who I took an instant dislike to. Was part of a crowd who used to meet up at each other house for parties and said friend came to fewer and fewer and then not at all.
It was only talking to other mates that we realised nobody had seen her for weeks and she had stopped returning calls and texts so her nest friend got in touch with the Police.
Turned out she was locked into the box room of her own house by the arsehole but was still keeping in touch with her parents to deflect suspicion.
She is sort of OK now but still suspicious twenty years on.

You will not be happy until you have every man's testicles removed and then have them put in small steel boxes .

You would have been good in the Labour party in 1980 with old footy, the more I think of you the more I see the old Jo Brand ala 1987.

It takes a massive right wing, misogynist fist of a person to consider a move by May and Rudd to be leftie stick welding.

Yes. That's all fine. Not remotely disturbing at all.
