On 6 November 2014, the House of Lords is scheduled to debate the following motion:

“that this House takes note of women facing homelessness, domestic violence and social exclusion”

Information presented in this Note has been compiled to provide background reading for Members ahead of the debate. Although there is significant overlap between the issues, the Note has been divided into three separate sections. These in turn consider women’s homelessness, domestic violence and social exclusion. Each section opens with an introduction to the issue, including background and statistics, with the aim of providing some context, before setting out the government policy. The sections then conclude with commentary from charities, interested organisations and research bodies that have put forward further policy recommendations.

    Between 12 July and 31 October 2021, the Government temporarily relaxed the enforcement of retained EU law that sets the driving time limits and rest patterns of heavy goods vehicle drivers. This was in response to disruption caused by the HGV driver shortage and the Covid-19 pandemic, amongst other things. The Drivers’ Hours and Tachographs (Temporary Exceptions) (No. 4) Regulations 2021 extends this temporary relaxation from 1 November 2021 until 11.59pm on 9 January 2022. On 6 December 2021, the House of Lords will debate a motion to annul this instrument.
