LegCo to hear expert evidence on domestic abuse

Whole council to sit as a committee for the first time

Expert evidence on domestic abuse will be heard at next week's sitting of the Legislative Council.

As MLCs consider the Domestic Abuse Bill, Kate Lord-Brennan had asked for a three-member select committee to hear from experts on the subject.

However, every member wanted to be involved, so the whole council will sit as a committee on Tuesday.

It will be the first time a LegCo sitting has been held in this way.

The sitting takes place in the Legislative Council Chamber on Tuesday from 10.30am.
