Sexual Exploitation Motion, 12/07/13 [E/NI/S/W]

Early Day Motion lodged in the House of Commons on 12 July 2013 by Sarah Champion (Lab) on child sexual exploitation.

The full text of the motion reads:

That this House applauds Barnardo's, one of the UK's leading children's charities, for its continued work on tackling child sexual exploitation (CSE); believes CSE is still a hidden issue and recognises that in 2012 alone the charity helped over 1400 sexually exploited children and young people through 23 specialist services; praises its campaign to highlight the fact that no child can ever truly agree to being sexually exploited; encourages an improved system linking project workers to be actively working with the police, local authorities, local faith organisations, local community organisations and other stakeholders to identify victims and offer them appropriate support; and calls for effective facilitating of policing and securing successful prosecutions.
