  • Two in five MPs (39%) say that they have never heard of a family member or friend experiencing domestic abuse. A similar proportion (37%) report that they have but that this was over a year ago.
  • Half of MPs (50%) say that they have never heard of a colleague experiencing domestic abuse, with a further one in five (21%) reporting that they have but that this was over a year ago.
