Metropolitan Police: Human Trafficking

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the reasons are for the withdrawal of funding for the Metropolitan Police Human Trafficking Unit; and if she will make a statement. (243116)

Following discussions with the Metropolitan Police Service, we have decided to provide additional funding for the MPS trafficking team.

Human trafficking is part of core police business and this funding, which is a one-off grant, is designed to enable the MPS to mainstream this work into its daily activities in a planned and organised fashion.
