Please provide information on the number of reported rape cases passed by the Met to the CPS in each of the following years: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019? Please also provide figures on how many were not passed to the CPS in each of these years.

I am advised that current recording practices do not allow the MPS to pull this data from their systems easily and have requested full figures as soon as it is possible.

The Deputy Mayor for Police and Crime Sophie Linden has agreed to raise the issue of case volumes passed between MPS and CPS with senior officials at the MPS. I will ensure that the outcome of these discussions are shared by MOPAC.
