Human Trafficking

Volume 447: debated on Wednesday 14 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what arrangements will be included in the Government’s Action Plan for Tackling Human Trafficking to ensure that victims of trafficking are (a) treated as victims and (b) not detained. (76665)

We are currently considering the responses to the consultation paper on proposals for tackling human trafficking, many of which focus on the issue of victims and how best to respond to their needs. A summary of the consultation paper responses will be published on the 21 June.

This is an area of concern which requires a careful response and consideration of these issues will form a central part of the National Action Plan against trafficking which will be published later this year.
