The National Crime Agency publishes statistics on referrals into the National Referral Mechanism on a quarterly basis, which includes the breakdown of referrals for children by exploitation type. Criminal exploitation is recorded as a sub category of labour exploitation and includes exploitation such as county lines and cannabis cultivation.
