Fiona Mactaggart – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Fiona Mactaggart on 2016-09-02.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what criteria were used to select Wales, Hampshire and Greater Manchester as the locations for the early adopter sites for the second phase trials of independent child trafficking advocates.

Sarah Newton

The early adopter sites were chosen because they offer a wide geographical coverage across England and Wales with the potential for differing levels and types of referrals, including children who may have been internally trafficked, as well as those that have been trafficked from abroad.
