22. To ask the Minister for Women and Equality what recent steps the Government have taken to support victims of domestic violence. (204066)

I am proud to say that this Government have introduced more measures to support victims of domestic violence than any other before. They include

Establishing 98 specialist domestic violence courts;

Allocating £3 million per year over the three years from 2008-07 for independent domestic violence advisers;

Multi-agency risk assessment conferences will be established across England and Wales by 2011.
