Harriett Baldwin calls on Government to work with Vietnam to prevent people trafficking

28th October 2019

Following the Government statement on the human trafficking tragedy in Essex, Harriett Baldwin calls on the Government to examine ways to communicate to young people in countries such as Vietnam that they should not make this dangerous journey.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con)

No one could fail to be moved by the terrible stories of young lives that were literally snuffed out. I appreciate that my right hon. Friend cannot say where the victims came from, but I know that in the past some victims have been identified as coming from Vietnam, and that the UK has a very strong ministerial strategic dialogue with Vietnam. Will the Home Secretary ensure that at the next meeting she discusses with her officials how we can communicate to these young people, jointly, the message that they should not make this dangerous journey?

Priti Patel

That dialogue is already under way, and, in view of the terrible tragedy that has taken place, it is right that it is under way.
