Jane Hutt, Deputy Minister and Chief Whip
I am pleased to announce the publication of the Annual Report 2019-20 produced by Yasmin Khan and Nazir Afzal OBE, the National Advisers for Violence against Women, Gender-based Violence, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence. This is also a requirement of the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015.
The report describes the National Advisers’ progress against the challenging objectives they set for themselves in their annual plan for 2019-20. It also provides a critique of Welsh Government achievements during the year. I am pleased that the report recognises the ongoing strides we have made and grateful to them for the expertise and energy they bring to the role and for the continuing support they have given me and my officials throughout the reporting period.
