On Wednesday, November 20, 2013 NDP Justice Critic Gerry Rogers introduced a Private Member's Motion which called on Government to reinstate the Family Violence Intervention Court.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Member for St. John’s Centre.

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Leader of the Third Party.

MS MICHAEL:: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.
