People Trafficking: Children

Lord Sheikh asked Her Majesty’s Government:

    What proposals they have to tackle trafficking of children following the report on this subject by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, published in June. [HL4754]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Home Office (Lord West of Spithead): The Home Office commissioned this report in 2006 to improve our knowledge of the nature and extent of child trafficking in the UK. We are most concerned about the plight of child victims revealed in the findings and welcome the recommendations, which are being actively pursued as part of the Government’s action plan on tackling human trafficking.
