Prime Minister's Statement on Child Migration
Following the Prime Minister's statement to the House of Commons on the practice of transporting children overseas, Shailesh Vara asks how many children sent abroad are still alive.
Mr. Shailesh Vara (North-West Cambridgeshire) (Con): In order to appreciate the scale of the problem, can the Prime Minister give an indication of the number of children sent abroad, and does he have any idea of the number who might still be alive?
The Prime Minister: This information is being collected over time, so I think I should give a more updated report to the hon. Gentleman at a later date, rather than give him figures that might turn out not to be correct.
