David Lammy – 2021 Comments on Government’s Rape Review

The comments made by David Lammy, the Shadow Justice Secretary, on 20 June 2021.

The Conservatives must urgently clarify whether or not they intend to stick to the target of increasing the number of rapists who are charged and end up in court.
