Committee report on ‘Domestic Violence. Forced Marriage and ‘Honour’-Based Violence’

The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee published its report on ‘Domestic Violence, Forced Marriage and “Honour”-Based Violence’ on 13 June 2008.

The report states that ‘a lack of standardised data, and what is judged to be significant under-reporting, make it difficult to make an accurate assessment of the numbers of individuals experiencing domestic violence’, while ‘understanding of the scale of so-called “honour”-based violence and forced marriage is even patchier’.
