asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they intend to publish guidance under Section 63Q of the Family Law Act 1996 (as inserted by the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007). [HL2412]

Work is under way to revise the existing guidance for professionals in light of the provisions of the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007. We aim to reissue this guidance on a statutory footing in the autumn.
