Member of Parliament at the House of Commons and Solicitor General for England and Wales Oliver Heald spoke out recently in mid June, 2013 saying progress to stop human trafficking in the UK has been implemented, but crime and abuse by traffickers is still actively taking place within the region. . .

Human Trafficking has both global and local aspects which I will be examining in this speech. The UK has started to achieve significant progress in the fight against trafficking. The government launched a Human Trafficking Strategy in 2011 which takes a comprehensive approach to preventing trafficking activity and maintaining effective care for victims. Make no mistake; we are constantly reviewing how we in Government tackle this evil which threatens the liberties of millions and is a new form of slavery. As you know I am Solicitor General, and the role of the Law Officers is to superintend the prosecuting services in England and Wales. Prosecution is very much the focus of my remarks today.
