THE reformed Hampshire-based Fathers 4 Justice campaign group has won Conservative backing for a change to family law.
The Tories have agreed a ten-point action plan which includes legal backing for shared child contact between separated parents.
They are promising to include the family law reforms in their general election manifesto next week.
Nadine O’Connor, wife of Fathers 4 Justice founder Matt O’Connor, has taken over the running of the controversial organisation which became known for its high profile stunts which saw
costume-wearing dads scale Buckingham Palace, disrupt Parliament and take over a live National Lottery broadcast.
Nadine, who lives in Romsey, said: “This is the game-changing announcement we have been working towards.
“We look forward to working with the Conservative Party on ensuring this commitment becomes a reality for the thousands of children and families whose lives are blighted by the family courts.”
Romsey and Southampton North Conservative candidate Caroline Nokes is backing the move.
She said: “Families really are the bedrock of our community. I welcome the announcement and look forward to the ten points being implemented after the election.”
