Boris Johnson has said he cannot guarantee that targets to improve rape prosecution and conviction rates set out in the government's Rape Review will be met.
Plans set out in the report, which was commissioned in 2019 and published in June of this year, said the volume of rape cases going to court should return to "at least 2016 levels" when there were 5,190 prosecutions and 2,991 convictions.
Mr Johnson also refused to confirm that he could look a rape victim in the eye and tell them they had a high chance of achieving justice.
