Motion text

That this House notes with concern that trafficking of women, children and men is a growing problem in the UK, and that 32 out of 33 London boroughs have identified a problem with trafficked children; welcomes the fact that trafficking for sexual and labour exploitation are criminal offences in the UK, but is dismayed at the lack of measures needed to protect and support people who have been trafficked into the country, including safe housing and emergency medical support; and calls upon the Government urgently to sign and ratify the new Council of Europe Convention Against Trafficking, which is specifically aimed at protecting trafficked people's rights, and for the UK to use its presidency of the EU to encourage other member states to do the same.
