Pendle MP congratulates children's charity
1:33pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
PENDLE MP Andrew Stephenson has congratulated children’s charity Barnardo's for its work on tackling child sexual exploitation.
The Tory backbencher is one of 51 MPs of all parties to sign a Commons motion highlighting its groundbreaking work in the field.
Mr Stephenson said: “I believe this is still a hidden issue. I recognise that in 2012 alone Barnardo’s helped over 1,400 sexually exploited children and young people through 23 specialist services.
“I praise its campaign to highlight that no child can ever truly agree to being sexually exploited “I call for effective policing, securing successful prosecutions.”
