Violent Parent Access Ban Proposed in England

There is a political group in England pushing for a child access ban for parents accused of domestic violence. Look here for the BBC news report. Of course, it's obvious on the surface that this is a good idea, and that children shouldn't be put in the hands of violent parents. But the sad truth is that, at least in the U.S, false allegations of domestic and sexual violence often arise in divorce settlements, and this could be used to leverage more control from women who are willing to make false accusations. Where should the balance lie?
