Oral Evidence


MISSING UNACCOMPANIED ASYLUM-SEEKING CHILDREN

This is a one-off evidence session following up the Committee's inquiry into human trafficking. One area of particular concern to the Committee in relation to that inquiry was the evidence about the significant number of suspected child victims of human trafficking who, having entered the UK and been placed in care homes, went missing. It was feared that a significant number of these children had 'escaped' back to their traffickers.

The Committee is taking evidence from:

At 11.30 am

The Deputy Director, Children's Services, Hillingdon Council

At 11.50 am

ECPAT (umbrella organisation for children's charities)

Location: Committee Room 6, Palace of Westminster

The session is expected to last about 1 hour.
