People Trafficking

Volume 700: debated on Tuesday 25 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What has since happened to the 12 children and young people under 18 who were set free by Operation Pentameter 1; and how many persons have so far been assisted by Operation Pentameter 2. [HL2503]

Operation Pentameter 2 is currently ongoing. We shall release the relevant figures after the conclusion of this operation.

Of those minors recovered under Operation Pentameter 1, three volunteered to return home, seven were referred to children's services of which two have been found foster carers. Upon further investigation it was decided the two other minors were not thought to be victims of trafficking.
