Victoria Atkins, Member of Parliament for Louth & Horncastle and Minister for Crime, Safeguarding and Vulnerability, last week introduced landmark legislation to transform the legal response to Domestic Abuse.
We're bringing in new measures to make bosses of companies which bother people with unsolicited nuisance calls personally liable for fines if they break the law. For too long rogue directors have escaped justice by liquidating their firms and opening up again under a different name.
