Labour will introduce specialist rape courts

Kim McGuinness:

Thanks Chi for highlighting this vital issue. We’re doing all we can locally to support rape victims and get prosecutions but the system and the Tories are failing with cases taking 2 years to get to court with too few ever heard.

UK Labour will introduce specialist rape courts.


Chi :

The  Northumbria Police & Crime Commissioner, Kim McGuinness, has introduced Independent Sexual Violence Champions to improve victim experience in the face of this Government’s failure where less than 1 in 50 recorded rapes are charged.

I asked if the Minister if he would commit to specialist rape courts, as Labour has done.
