To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment she has made of the risks of retrafficking within the UK once a victim of trafficking has completed his or her period of reflection in a government-funded shelter and is no longer permitted to remain in the shelter accommodation.

Protecting victims is at the heart of the Government’s strategy on modern

slavery. Addressing the risk of retrafficking is a key factor in the review of

the National Referral Mechanism and the provision of support through Government

funded safe houses. Our strategy focuses on strengthening support for victims

so that they can increase their resilience to being retrafficked. This

includes Government funded support providers who work with victims to support

safe reintegration based on each individual’s needs, taking into account any

particular risk of retrafficking. The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner’s

role also includes promoting good practice in the prevention of modern slavery

offences, including prevention of retrafficking
