To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when she plans to respond to the recommendations of the Council of Europe Experts on Action Against Trafficking Report on the Implementation of the Council of Europe Convention on Action Against Trafficking in Human Beings by the UK, published in September 2012.
The Government intends to respond to the recommendations of the Council of
Europe Experts on Action Against Trafficking (GRETA) Report shortly.
Since September 2012, the Government has made significant progress in
tackling modern slavery, including human trafficking, and the response will fully
reflect our progress to date. This includes introducing a world-leading
Modern Slavery Bill to Parliament, publishing a comprehensive modern slavery
strategy, trialling child trafficking advocates to better protect child victims
and thoroughly reviewing the identification and support of victims through the
National Referral Mechanism.
