Forced marriage crime ruled out by ministers
Ministers have ruled out creating a forced marriage crime, despite pressure from MPs to do so.
In an interview for the BBC's Asian Network, Home Office minister Lynne Featherstone said that it was not on the government's agenda.
The Home Affairs committee has called for an offence to complement court orders to protect potential victims.
