A YORKSHIRE Euro-MP has called for joint action to stop forced marriages.
Lib Dem Diana Wallis yesterday called on all European Union (EU) countries to unite against the practice.
Speaking at a conference in Brussels, she said: “Forced marriage is an EU-wide issue and I think we need to start looking at EU-wide solutions.
“I would like to see funding for a network of victims’ associations and perhaps funding for an EU safe haven for victims of forced marriage.”
Forced marriage is illegal in Scotland, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Cyprus and Malta.
