“The Government is failing women and girls” – Ellie Reeves responds to Boris Johnson not guaranteeing Rape Review targets will be met

Ellie Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Solicitor General, responding to the Prime Minister saying he cannot guarantee the Government’s Rape Review targets to improve prosecution and conviction rates will be met by 2024, said:

“The Government is failing women and girls on every front.

“Under this Prime Minister, rape victims are being abandoned by the justice system.

“Rape prosecutions are at a record low, victims are being left deserted, and it is clear this is a government that has absolutely no desire to fix the mess it has created and no plan to keep women and girls safe.”
