Ellie Reeves responds to drop in prosecutions for domestic violence victims

Ellie Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Solicitor General, responding to the drop in prosecutions for domestic violence victims, said:

“This Tory government is letting down victims of domestic abuse on every front.

“More needs to be done to ensure that victims have faith that the criminal justice system will be there to support them throughout.

“The CPS needs to urgently identify the causes of why prosecution levels are so low, learn these lessons quickly and act swiftly to reverse this worrying trend.”
