Fiona Mactaggart – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Fiona Mactaggart on 2016-10-20.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many people have been granted refugee status or another type of subsidiary protection in the UK on the basis that they have been trafficked since 2010.

Mr Robert Goodwill

Our records indicate that since 2010, 1,003 confirmed victims of trafficking have been granted refugee status or other form of protection as a result of an application for asylum. It is not possible to say whether refugee status was awarded due to the applicant being a victim of trafficking without a review of individual case record at disproportionate cost.
