Women will get right to ask for new boyfriends' police files under controversial Claire's Law initiative
"Women will from tomorrow have the right to ask police whether a new boyfriend has a history of domestic violence.
Under a controversial initiative dubbed ‘Clare’s Law’, police and other agencies will be able to carry out checks and warn women if they are at risk.
Home Secretary Theresa May will announce she is launching trials in selected areas before rolling it out nationally.
The scheme, first disclosed in The Mail on Sunday a year ago, follows fears that internet dating has left many women in the dark about their partners’ backgrounds."
... and men, we hope.
