People Trafficking

Volume 699: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which articles of the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings would require (a) primary legislation, and (b) secondary legislation to be implemented in the United Kingdom.[HL1944]

Subject to final confirmation, we expect limited primary legislation to be required to ensure full compliance with Articles 10 and 14. Secondary legislation is likely to be needed to complete implementation of Articles 12, 13, and 14. Other important procedural and policy changes are required to implement the Convention but are not judged to require legislation.
