Courts: Domestic Violence

Volume 488: debated on Friday 6 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many specialist domestic violence courts there are in each constituency; and how many are located in (a) urban and (b) rural areas. (260925)

There are currently 104 specialist domestic violence courts. As court boundaries are not coterminous with constituency boundaries, it is not possible to specify the number in each constituency. Their existence in 39 out of 42 Local Criminal Justice Board areas locates them, however, in urban and rural areas across England and Wales.
