‘I really welcome this.  The issue has lurked in the shadows for too long, and I think it’s got to be brought into mainstream consciousness more.  About 20,000 children in England and Wales are deemed "at risk" every year. The situation is similar in France, yet whereas some 100 parents and practitioners of this have been convicted in France, there has never been a single prosecution in the UK. I think many of the people who are affected by this are voiceless and unprotected, and we’ve got to do more to understand it.’
