Human Trafficking

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much the Government spent on (a) Operation Pentameter 1 and (b) Operation Pentameter 2. (243320)

We provided £100,000 to further support the victim care arrangements under Operation Pentameter 2. All other costs of both operations were met from existing budgets.

Outside of these operations we have, to date invested £5.8 million in the Poppy Project over the last six years to provide high level specialist support for victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation, and have committed a further £4.9 million over the next three years to support the work of the UK human trafficking centre.
