Abstract: Women and children brought to the UK as sex slaves will have new rights thanks to the government's decision to ratify the European convention on human trafficking. Downing Street today confirmed Britain would join 34 other states in signing the treaty, which requires countries to provide victims with secure accommodation, access to emergency medical assistance, counselling and legal advice.
