Electronic tags proposed

Electronically tagging men on protection orders has been proposed by Bill Wilson, the former Supreme Court judge heading the Glenn Inquiry.

The inquiry's ''People's Report'' is due to be released today and analyses accounts of victims and workers in the field.

While specific recommendations are not due until the inquiry's final report in October, Mr Wilson has suggested tagging because he said men would not be stopped from attacking their former partner or children by a piece of paper.

The tag would go off, alerting police and the former partner when a perimeter had been breached.

Mr Wilson also called for an overhaul of the family violence system and court and for political parties to work together on the matter.
