Dame Vera Baird QC, has written to ministers asking them to address the issue of victims of domestic abuse being traced by their abusers through the national insurance database.

Following a story in the Independent earlier this week highlighting the issue of victims fleeing domestic abuse being traced by their abusers through the national insurance database, the Victims’ Commissioner has written to the Home Secretary, Work and Pensions Secretary and Financial Secretary to the Treasury to call for changes to be made so that victims can either change their national insurance numbers more easily or can have their data protected more tightly.

The letter can be found on the link below.
