Continuing to tackle violence against women and girls overseas

Liberal Democrat Home Office Minister Lynne Featherstone has called on David Cameron and Ed Miliband to commit to ensuring that the role of the UK Ministerial Champion for Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Overseas continues in the next Parliament.

In a letter to the two leaders, Lynne writes of the privilege she had of serving in the role and calls for them to support the continuation of the post, regardless of who forms the next government.
