So What Does ‘E-Borders’ do to Combat Trafficking?

Member of Parliament Mark Harper (Forest of Dean, Conservative) has responded to a query from a fellow MP by mentioning the e-Borders programme, which will allow Border authorities to track information about travellers attempting to arrive in the UK.

According to Harper, the e-learning training packages have been developed to help UKBA and Border staff to combat the trade of trafficking as both perpetrators and victims attempt to enter the country.  Analysis of the data will help authorities track in advance those who pose a threat, including human traffickers, as well as those who may have been trafficked.

Harper made his comments in response to a query from Frank Field (Birkenhead, Labour), who asked what proportion of frontline UK Border staff are trained to recognise suspected cases of human trafficking.  Harper said that the mandatory training packages will help identify the victims and help staff know what steps to take to safeguard possible victims.
