"David T.C. Davies (Monmouth) (Con): Before turning to clause 13, may I reiterate the comments of many hon. Members who agree—in fact, everyone does so—that trafficking in human beings for any purpose is evil, and who recognise that those evil people must be stamped out and put behind bars? I commend the Government, because over the past few years, there has been greater awareness of that evil trade, of which many of us were ignorant five, six or 10 years ago. It is now very much in everyone’s mind, and the Government have tried to ensure that when traffickers are caught, tough sentences are handed out. There are two problems. First, very few of them are caught and, secondly, despite the long sentences that are handed out, most of those people walk out free halfway through as a result of automatic early release, about which I should like to speak at length another time.

The problem with clause 13 is that it appears to have been drafted in the heat of the moment, rather than after a cold, hard look at the facts. The Minister talks about trying to reduce trafficking by stemming the demand, and about the financial incentive for traffickers to bring women into this country to offer sexual services. If that is the case, and if the Government believe that by going after prostitutes’ clients they will stem that demand, they must answer the question that I have posed about child beggars. When I went to Europe and discussed trafficking with senior Europol officers a few months ago on behalf of the Select Committee on Home Affairs, they told me that, to a trafficker, a child beggar is worth more money than a female prostitute. They gave me rough figures—no one can be exact—and said that a child beggar was worth €100,000 a year to a trafficker, and a female prostitute was worth about €75,000 a year.

They went on to say that, as a result, some towns in some parts of eastern Europe have practically been turned into baby factories where women produce children specifically so that they can be kidnapped, taken away to countries such as the United Kingdom and exploited as beggars and petty thieves. I am sure that the Minister will agree that that trade is equally disgusting."

Having no knowledge on the subject, but only intuition, I guess (sic) :rolleyes:

My initial feeling - This surely cannot be so!!...Can it??????????

It was just that trafficking for sex, cheap farm labour etc was somethig we knew about, but always thought of as massively exaggerated. We have seen in 5 year an occasional situation where it seemed it might be going on, and as we didnt like it we just dropped them from the agency and stepped away from the situation never being really sure if it was true but dropped them anyway. It never occurred to us that trafficking could exist in another form. If buying and selling of beggars exists, its horrific and nasty and we think that our trust in humanity would dissipate. Drawing from our own experiences, we would say that if it can be proven to exist then its osolated instances that once noticed get magnified out of all proportion by the shock of finding a case of it.

We think that the shock of discovering a new form of trafficking is just shocking in itself (well it was a new discovery to us anyway).

Im worried that we are so shocked at stories like this, that we forget to question true or false and then put it in perspective with true figures (such as exactly how many times its happened)

still not quite sure what to think but now going off to read some of the related links.

Personally I think this is what the media nad government want an un-critical thinking public, and one of the way this is done is to appeal to 'emotions' and not 'reason'

This is why I found it hard to accept the idea of a town being turned into a 'baby factory' - process of reason and not emotion

:rolleyes:

quite right, where's the photgraphic evidence of this village? and the many conffessions in police reports, the arrests and convictions to support such things?

its everyone first reaction to read something, react in shock and make instant conclusions that are often false by an emotional response.

I wonder if some of this may have been reference to Fiona MacTaggerts constituency of Slough. There was a police operation against alot of Romanian? gypsies and many children were taken in to care. I believe, the operation was an overkill and not alot came of it in the end.

Then in Bristol on some traffic lights, often stopped by children washing car windscreens, looked quite organised. Were these trafficked or just out to rip a few pounds from travellers.
