Chloe Smith, Member of Parliament for Norwich North on Friday 23rd March 2018 welcomes the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, to Norwich.

Chloe and Amber Rudd visited The Magdalene Group to find out more about its work to support women who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing sexual exploitation.

Chloe also discussed with The Home Secretary the tragic case of Norwich mother, Kerri McAuley who was murdered by her former partner. Chloe has been working closely with Kerri's family to ensure that lessons can be learned from her tragic case, as the Government has launched it consultation on a proposed law change to help tackle domestic abuse.

Chloe comments: "It was good to show the Home Secretary the excellent work being done in by the Magdalene Group and its volunteers to prevent the sexual exploitation and coercion of women and young people. The Conservative Government is working hard to help domestic abuse victims too, and Amber Rudd’s visit today shows yet more support for what needs to be done following Kerri McAuley’s murder. As part of my work as a constituency MP to use Kerri’s death to improve the law, I would urge people to take part in the Government consultation about new domestic abuse laws."
