To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what his policy is on police forces passing to his Department information on victims of trafficking offences who are in the UK unlawfully in order to facilitate their deportation.

The police priority is to protect victims and investigate crime and forces are extremely careful about doing anything to deter victims from reporting crime. Victims of crime should be treated as victims first and foremost. Each case is considered very carefully but there will be instances where police need to exchange information with the Home Office.

When individuals are found to have no basis in the UK, Immigration Enforcement’s (IE) immediate priority is to ensure that all vulnerable migrants receive the support and assistance they need regardless of their immigration status.
