Labour responds to figures showing only one in 60 rapes lead to a charge

Ellie Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Solicitor General, responding to the latest figures showing only one in 60 rapes lead to a charge, said;

This government is letting down victims of rape on every front. Many survivors feel the justice system is working against them, not for them and that is completely the wrong way round.

“The Government has no plan to deal with the failings that have happened under its watch, and we have been waiting for its rape review for over two-years.

“Labour have published our Survivors’ Support Plan and Ending Violence Against Women and Girls Green Paper to ensure our criminal justice system works for everyone.”
