Human Trafficking: Prosecutions

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many individuals have been prosecuted as a result of work carried out by the Metropolitan Police human trafficking team. (243482)

[holding answer 15 December 2008]: Of the 92 convictions secured for human trafficking offences 27 have been as a result of operations by the police in the Metropolitan Police Service area. It is not possible to break down the number solely related to the work of the Met’s trafficking unit as operations against this crime often involve officers from the boroughs, the Clubs and Vice Unit as well as from the joint operations involving UKBA staff.
