Defence Of Provocation

EDM number 106 in 1991-92, proposed by Dawn Primarolo on 07/11/1991.

That this House believes that the present case law on provocation discriminates against victims of domestic violence, resulting in wide and unacceptable variations in sentences; regards the case law criterion of `sudden and temporary' loss of control as too restrictive because it prevents consideration of the effect of cumulative domestic violence; and calls for legislation to enable juries to take account of cumulative provocation and to provide that any consequent loss of control does not have to be sudden.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
