To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their assessment of the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) statistics on the number of positive conclusions for United Kingdom children compared to referrals from other countries of origin; and whether there are separate criteria for decision-making when making an NRM decision relating to a child victim from the United Kingdom.

The criteria for National Referral Mechanism (NRM) decision making is the same for all cases regardless of age, gender or nationality. NRM decisions are made following a consideration of the facts in an individual case. This may include where and how the victim was identified, when the exploitation occurred and where the victim was located. As the circumstance of each case will be unique a comparative assessment of differences between different nationality groups would be of limited value.
