50 RMBC Councillors just don’t care
Responding to a news article on the BBC regarding child trafficking and sexual exploitation
A Home Office spokesman said:
“Child trafficking and child sexual exploitation are both abhorrent forms of child abuse and the UK government is committed to combating this crime in all its forms.
“Since 2011 we have been delivering a child sexual exploitation action plan to raise awareness, prosecute and jail criminals, protect young people at risk and help victims get their lives back on track.
“We have already made significant progress in the fight against trafficking but are not complacent and will continue to work to improve and strengthen our approach.”
So if the Home Office sees the need for action and increasing awareness why have only 13 RMBC councillors registered their interest in attending child sexual exploitation awareness training sessions?
The reason? They just don’t care!
