Alan Simpson: I doubt whether anyone can match the hon. Member for Totnes (Mr. Steen) for the work he has done on this issue, but my limited experience of it prompts me to ask whether the interface that trafficked women have with health services in the voluntary sector can be assisted by overcoming the linguistic barriers, which are part of the problem. In many cases there is a heavy dependence on people...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Nov 2009)

Opposition Day — [19th allotted day]: Climate Change (Political Response) (21 Oct 2009)
