New part­ners could be told of lover’s vi­o­lence

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

An MP is to try to in­tro­duce a law to cre­ate a reg­is­ter of those con­victed of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and make po­lice warn new part­ners of a re­peated of­fender’s vi­o­lent past.

Liz Sav­ille Roberts, MP for Dwyfor Meiri­on­nydd, wants any­one guilty of such of­fences to give po­lice their name, date of birth, home ad­dress and Na­tional In­sur­ance number within three days of a conviction. Po­lice would then be given pow­ers to warn new part­ners of per­sis­tent of­fend­ers about their lovers’ crim­i­nal his­tory.
