People Trafficking

Volume 711: debated on Monday 1 June 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they were represented at the recent conference in London for the chairmen of parliamentary committees in Europe concerned with human trafficking; and whether they will work to ensure that best practice is shared throughout Europe. [HL3827]

The conference organised by the Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee to launch that Committee’s report in to human trafficking was addressed by my right honourable friend the Home Secretary and was attended by officials from the Home Office.

It has always been the stated intention of the Government to ensure that best practice on combating this horrendous crime should be shared with our international partners. In respect of this we have an excellent relationship with other European countries and international agencies dealing with law enforcement.
