Attorney General says coercive control laws ‘will save lives’

Attorney General Mark Speakman told Deborah Knight it’s time to get on with it, in order to better protect women.
“This is something that will save lives and stop obnoxious behaviour.
“Every day we wait is another day we are potentially putting someone’s life in danger.”
