Human Trafficking

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 3 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps have been taken to assist trafficked persons discovered during Pentameter 1. (198248)

I have been asked to reply.

Operation Pentameter 1 recovered 88 possible victims. Victims were assisted into support services or returned to their country of origin. During the campaign specific guidance was given to police officers on appropriate victim care and police forces were asked to scope local service provision to help develop local strategies and partnerships.
