Mike Penning questions the Government on the status of the Victims' Bill which has long been promised.
When will we see the draft of the victims’ Bill, which was committed to by the Government and Her Majesty’s Opposition?
I thank my right hon. Friend for his question. We committed to the victim’s Bill in the last manifesto. We are up against it in terms of parliamentary time, as I am sure he understands, but work continues on the legislation most likely to underpin the victims’ code.
