Dr. Kumar: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funding the Government has allocated for measures to tackle human trafficking in (a) the UK and (b) the North East in each year since 1997. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: Funding for the fight against human trafficking is not provided on a regional basis as the crime is one that affects all parts of the country and our response therefore has to be national and strategic in nature.
From 2004 to the start of the current financial year we had given £5.8 million to Eaves Housing for Women to manage the support provisions for adult female victims of trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation. This has been further supported by a further £3.7 million over the next two financial years to Eaves Housing to continue these services on a wider geographical basis.
Mr. Steen: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funds his Department has allocated to the Metropolitan Police's human trafficking team for (a) 2009-10 and (b) 2010-11; what recent discussions he has had with the Metropolitan Police on (i) funding for and (ii) staff levels in the human trafficking team; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Alan Campbell [holding answer 17 June 2009]: Following negotiations with the Metropolitan Police, the Home Office agreed on an exceptional basis to provide an additional £435,000 for the current financial year.
Human trafficking is core police business. However, this money was granted in consideration of the fact that the Met, unlike the other forces, could not mainstream this work by the end of the last financial year and on the clear understanding that all anti-human trafficking work within the Met would be met from within their existing budget from 1 April 2010 onwards. The staffing levels are a matter for the Commissioner. The Metropolitan Police has developed a good relationship with the UK Human Trafficking Centre, which is the acknowledged centre of expertise on human trafficking issues and was established to co-ordinate the law enforcement response to this crime.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Harwich (Mr. Carswell) of 20 May 2009, Official Report, column 1463W, on identity cards: Greater Manchester, what national implementation strategy his Department will follow for the National Identity Service should take-up in the Manchester pilot be low. 
The identity card roll out included Foreign National Identity Cards, Critical Workers Identity Cards, Voluntary Identity Cards (commensurate with EU Member State Identity Cards) and the establishment of an identity register to supplement and eventually replace existing identity registers. The lessons learned from Manchester will feed into this roll out.
Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much funding his Department has allocated in respect of (a) translation services and (b) advertising in job centres in respect of schemes to encourage migrant workers to return home. 
Mr. Woolas: The Department does not operate any schemes to encourage migrant workers to return home. It follows that the Department has allocated no funding to date in respect of (a) translation services and (b) advertising in job centres in respect of such schemes.
Chris Huhne: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what disciplinary procedures apply in relation to (a) police officers, (b) police community support officers and (c) civilian police staff who are convicted of a criminal offence. 
Police officers are subject to disciplinary procedures set out in the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2008 (SI 2008 2864). In cases where the chief officer has determined that the conduct of an officer or police staff member amounts to gross misconduct, then the officer or police staff member may be dismissed from the service. There are alternative outcomes of a written warning or a final written warning.
Police community support officers and civilian police staff are not subject to police regulations, but are subject to procedures based on the terms and conditions of their employment with the force concerned.
Mr. Watson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will bring forward legislative proposals to require chief constables to issue stab-proof vests to police community support officers.
