People Trafficking

Volume 689: debated on Wednesday 31 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the publicity techniques used by Operation Pentameter have led to a greater flow of information about prostitutes thought to have been trafficked from overseas; and, if not, how they consider that intelligence on this subject should be improved. [HL1235]

As a result of Operation Pentameter, the information flows regarding this type of criminality increased substantially. Monitoring of internet chatrooms revealed concern about trafficking on the part of men who use prostitutes.

The UK Human Trafficking Centre is working with its partners to maintain and increase these information flows.
