I do not doubt the Minister's commitment to deal with this matter. It is the obligation of the State to fully address the issue of violence against women in all of its forms and to take measures to prevent such violence, protect its victims and, most importantly, prosecute the perpetrators. That is why it is essential that all elements of the Domestic Violence Act be fully implemented and that the remaining legislation and other actions needed to progress be pursued as a matter of urgency. I thank the Minister for his presence and commitment thus far.
