Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper said: “We have been campaigning for a new law on stalking for some time so it is welcome that the Government has accepted that changes are needed.
"However I am worried their plans do not go far enough, and are not strong enough. Their proposals risk being half-hearted and over-complicated, so victims won't get the protection they need."
Today on International Women's Day, the Government announced plans to make stalking a specific criminal offence.
International Women's Day is an important day to mark the injustices women suffer, both minor and major, at home and abroad.
