The Director of Public Prosecutions has said the decision not to prosecute two doctors accused of arranging abortions based on the sex of an unborn baby was "very difficult and finely balanced".
Keir Starmer pledged to reveal more about why the conclusion was reached in due course.
This was a very difficult and finely balanced decision. It was based on the individual facts of the case; it is not a policy decision.
But in light of concerns raised today, I have decided that it would be sensible to put into the public domain the case specific reasons for not prosecuting in much greater detail.
