Boris Johnson and Sir Keir Starmer clashed over falling conviction rates for rape and sexual assault at today’s PMQs, with Labour ministers condemning the PM for his “disgraceful” comments during the exchange. 

There was a disrespectful level of jeering and shouting from both sides of the Commons during the session, with speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle stepping in to caution MPs that he “didn’t expect to hear shouting from the backbenches” during a debate on such a “emotive and important issue”.
