HC Deb 17 February 1993 vol 219 cc223-4W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the British Government have urged the Government of Thailand to bring to justice those who are responsible for aiding or facilitating forced prostitution of women and children in that country, including both locals and foreign tourists who engage the services of child and other forced prostitutes.

Mr. Goodlad

Her Majesty's ambassador in Bangkok recently raised our concern about the problem of forced prostitution in Thailand, particularly of children, with the Thai Government. We will continue to encourage Thailand to take effective measures to tackle the problem.
