Clause 64 — Restrictions on scope of regulated activites: children
Protection of Freedoms Bill (Programme) (No. 4)
James Brokenshire (Old Bexley and Sidcup, Conservative)
The right hon. Gentleman makes an important point, and for the reason he cites we asked the Children’s Commissioner to review the practical care arrangements for trafficked children. We said that the right step at this stage was to seek that input, rather than to seek to legislate, recognising equally that several local authorities are already undertaking some very good practice.
I recognise that, in respect of the hon. Lady’s amendments, that might not be sufficient, but it was important that I respond and set out those points to the House this evening.
