Conservatives announce proposals to combat Human Trafficking

Shadow Home Secretary, David Davis, today unveiled Conservative proposals to combat Human Trafficking. They include signing up to and ratifying the European Convention on Action against Trafficking 2005, which has already been signed by 34 states.

Commenting, Shadow Home Secretary, David Davis, said:

“This year marks the anniversary of 200 years since William Wilberforce, a man from my part of the world, ended the abhorrent slave trade.

“Yet whilst we celebrate this, it is important to remember those who are victims of what the UN has termed ‘the modern slave trade’. Human trafficking is a hideous trade in human misery, which is spiralling out of control at the moment. We must stop ignoring it and start to tackle the criminal gangs who perpetrate it, and to protect the victims of it.

“Today we are announcing policies based on policing our borders, protecting the victims and prosecuting the traffickers. We would also sign and ratify the European Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings 2005.”
