The funding needed to maintain the Metropolitan Police's Human Trafficking Unit in 2009-10 will not be taken from other anti-trafficking operations. Following discussions with the MPS, the Home Secretary has agreed to provide funding which will enable the MPS to maintain the Human Trafficking team in 2009-10.
