An example of such a problem issue is the position of children in families where there is a threat of domestic violence. Such information constitutes grounds for MPs to ask the Government to come up with new legislation.
If children are at risk of domestic violence from one parent, the Youth Care Office, the child protection organisation, or even the police, can be contacted. However, as long as no punishable offence has been reported, nobody is actually able to solve the problem. That is why MPs called for a legal provision to allow a temporary domestic exclusion order to be issued for one parent. The minister was in agreement with the MPs that this problem needed to be addressed and instructed his civil servants to draft a bill.
