a) commission and fund mandatory training for professionals - including, but not limited to, social work and Cafcass Cymru staff - in order to recognise Parental Alienation, including pathways to protect children from harm;

c) place a duty on Welsh Ministers to act to protect children from abuse and harm where Parental Alienation has been identified.
