Dear Simon,

Violence Against Women and Girls funding

I am pleased to see that the Home Office has now published data on cross government funding to tackle Violence Against Women and Girls.

This information supports a statement made in the Tackling violence against women and girls strategy which was also quoted by the Home Secretary in a speech to the Conservative Party on Thursday 5th October.

Whilst the information was available at the time the statement was made, it was difficult to locate all the policy documents in order to verify the statement. The annex to the strategy now enables the public to more clearly see the basis for the statement.

It is right that these figures are clearly presented, so that they are equally available to all, in line with the principles of the Code of Practice for Statistics.

Yours sincerely,

Ed Humpherson

Director General for Regulation
