Trafficking And Sexual Exploitation

EDM number 931 in 2010-12, proposed by Annette Brooke on 01/11/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Crime, Human rights and Sexual offences.

That this House congratulates the Soroptimist International of Poole for highlighting issues of trafficking for sexual exploitation through the Purple Teardrop Campaign; recognises that over the last year 4,000 people have been trafficked into the UK and forced to work as prostitutes; notes that advertisements for services of a sexual nature increase the demand for trafficking; is concerned that advertising of sex for sale increases greatly when large numbers of tourists gather for sporting events, such as the Olympics; is further concerned that any cuts in police funding should not impact on the ability of police forces to take effective actionagainst trafficking; and urges the Government to take action to reduce demand in the UK for trafficked women.

This motion has been signed by a total of 49 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
