1637. Hon Alison Xamon to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:

I refer to the recent passage of legislation in Victoria to address dowry-related abuse, and I ask:

(b)  if yes to (a), please provide information about any proposed amendments, including relevant timeframes; and
