The production of leading neutrons, where the neutron carries a large fraction xL of the incoming proton's longitudinal momentum, is studied in deep-inelastic positron-proton scattering at HERA. The data were taken with the H1 detector in the years 2006 and 2007 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 122 pb-1. The semi-inclusive cross section is measured in the phase space defined by the photon virtuality 6
