Statement in response to the publication of the Women’s Aid report: Nineteen Child Homicides

President of the Family Division Sir James Munby said:

“I welcome the publication of the ‘Nineteen Child Homicides’ report by Women’s Aid.  This is a valuable report on an important issue which I take very seriously. I will consider the report with the care it deserves and identify the lessons that the judiciary can learn from it. I believe that other agencies in the family justice system may also benefit from the report and I look forward to discussing its conclusions with them and to taking joint action to address the findings of the report.”
