Discuss whether the new law on loss of control has improved matters and if so, is the law now perfect or do problems remain?

How should I structure my answer and what are some of the things I can include?
Thanks

I'd be contrasting the old law of provocation (under the Homicide Act 1957) with the new "loss of control" defence. It might be helpful to look at the problems caused by the old defence and to consider whether these are still occurring under the new law, either due to the way that the courts are interpreting it or because of "tactics" by (defence) counsel.

The most obvious starting point is in relation to battered women and the relationship between "old" provocation and (unchanged) diminished responsibility.
