Heidi Allen MP signs cross party letter calling for “Covert Policy change” on rape cases to be reversed

Heidi Allen MP, and eleven other cross party MPs, have signed a letter to the Attorney General calling for a reversal of the “covert policy change” following a drop in rape case charges.

The letter raises concerns over recent figures which show the number of rape cases, charged and brought to court, have fallen by 44% despite the number of rape cases reported increasing by 173%.
