To ask the Scottish Government whether it plans to hold a debate on its strategy to tackle human trafficking and exploitation before the consultation period closes.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 8 November 2016
There are no plans to hold such a debate while the public consultation on the draft Trafficking and Exploitation Strategy is underway. The Scottish Government encourages all those with an interest to respond to the consultation, which will inform further development of the strategy. Details of the consultation process are available at: https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/human-trafficking-team/a-human-trafficking-and-exploitation-strategy.
