HL Deb 09 January 1995 vol 560 c13WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress has been made by the Home Office in monitoring prosecutions by other countries of their nationals who have committed sexual offences against children extra-territorially.

Baroness Blatch

The most recent information available about countries known to have adopted extra-territorial jurisdiction over sexual offences against children indicates that prosecutions have been brought in Germany, Norway and Sweden against citizens of those countries. In only one case (in Norway) is a prosecution so far known to have been successful. We continue to keep the position under review.
