Northumbria PCC’s Response to the Home Office’s Consultation on Preventing and Tackling Forced Marriage

26th February 2019

This consultation aimed to explore two ways in which the Government might increase reporting of forced marriage, identify potential perpetrators and improve protection for victims. Consideration was given to the possibility of:

  1. Introducing a legal duty requiring professionals to report cases – Mandatory Reporting on Forced Marriage
  2. Updating the guidance that was published in 2014 – Guidance on Forced Marriage

The Angelou Centre and Northumbria Police provided us with their views for this consultation and these views informed this response.
