§ Mr. Cordle
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the Government will consider legislation to protect au pair girls from exploitation, 23W or at least to provide some guidelines for those who employ them.
§ Mr. Lane
General guidance is already provided in the Home Office au pair leaflets which are issued to au pair girls and their hostesses. I am not convinced that there is a case for legislation, but I am keeping the matter under review. If my hon. Friend has in mind any specific case, and will send me particulars, I will look into it.
