The Home Office is currently considering the recommendations of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Missing and Runaway Children and Adults’ report, ‘Children who go missing and are criminally exploited by gangs’, which was published on 13 July 2017.

We are taking firm action to tackle the issue of child criminal exploitation and I have written to the Chair of the APPG with an offer to meet to discuss the report’s findings.
