Possibly but why should it if their case is bona-fide.  It would most certainly dissuade erroneous and career-destroying accusations of a groundless nature being made and these are happening more and more.  It is shocking that complainants are guaranteed anonymity and I am convinced that these "historical" cases need treated this way, i.e., with full disclosure.  What do people have to lose when they make these allegations?  Answer - absolutely nothing, whilst the accused loses almost everything.
Even worse.  Apparently the incumbent Lord Justice General, Carlaway, is hell-bent on taking away completely the need for corroboration in these rape cases.  These cases will multiply like never before if this cornerstone of justice is removed. 
Rape is deplorable and totally wrong and abhorrent but the consequences of Carlaway being successful are much more so as far as much of the legal profession is concerned.
