I haven't seen any discussion about this Bill that is currently in front of the Justice Committee.

Domestic Abuse (Protection) (Scotland) Bill

Does anyone here know much about it? The deadline is round the corner on 4 Dec 2020.

Would someone be able to look through the Bill and accompanying documents to see if there's anything we should be concerned about or needing a response?

Please pass on to various women's groups and publicize it online. I think For Women Scotland are aware of it, but not sure if they will be able to look into it.

Bizarrely, there hasn't been any indication from the usual groups like Engender, Scottish Women's Aid etc that they have responded to this Call for Views.
