To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether he plans to publish the end to end review on rape before the end of 2019-21 parliamentary session.
13 April 2021
The Government recognises that the decline in the number of rape and serious sexual offences being charged and prosecuted in England and Wales is a cause for significant concern. That is why we are carrying out an end-to end review of how the Criminal Justice System responds to rape. Through this review we are working with operational partners from across the Criminal Justice system including the police, CPS and victims’ groups to ensure we can improve the way rape cases are dealt with.
The Government intends to publish the report in the Spring.
