My Lords, if issues are raised in relation to any unaccompanied children who come into this country, those matters are pursued. We also respond to any information we receive. Noble Lords will know the work that Project Reflex carries out in terms of both women and children. So there is intelligence that we follow up. These issues are extremely important and it is right that this House has raised the issue of trafficked children on a number of occasions and, indeed, trafficking generally, particularly in relation to vulnerable women.
