Lynne Featherstone (Shadow Minister, Home Affairs, London, Cross-Portfolio and Non-Portfolio Responsibilities; Hornsey and Wood Green, Liberal Democrat)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many date rape cases have been reported in each of the last 12 months; where they were reported; and what assessment he has made of the use of progesterex in cases of date rape.
Paul Goggins (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Home Office; Wythenshawe and Sale East, Labour)
The information requested in relation to the number and location of date rape cases is not collected centrally. Progesterex does not exist. It has been the subject of a hoax e-mail which claims that progesterex, allegedly a drug used to sterilise horses, has been used in drug rape cases.
