asked Her Majesty's Government:

What decisions have so far been taken by the Interdepartmental Ministerial Group on Human Trafficking in respect of both sexual and labour exploitation; and how often the group meets. [HL3853]

The Interdepartmental Ministerial Group on Human Trafficking was established at the beginning of 2005 and meets on a quarterly basis. It has oversight of government policy on human trafficking and recently approved the content of the UK Action Plan on human trafficking which was published on the 23 March 2007.

The UK Action Plan pulls together all the work that is currently underway across Government to tackle human trafficking and sets out what else we plan to do. It applies to all forms of human trafficking, including trafficking for sexual exploitation, forced labour and child trafficking.
