Domestic violence bill sent to committee

The government's Domestic Violence (Enhancing Safety) Bill has just been sent to select committee. So that one at least will get the scrutiny it deserves.

Note that this is the first bill the government has sent to committee in its entire time in government so far. One out of five! It's a bad start from a bad government. And they look likely to do it all again in February when they repeal the EFA.
