MARGOT Parker MEP has called for prosecutions in the fight against female genital mutilation.
Her call comes as Barnardos announced it will lead a new £2.1m FGM prevention scheme in England to stamp out the practice and support victims.
Mrs Parker, UKIP MEP for the East Midlands and the party’s Women’s and Equalities spokesperson said: “I welcome the news of the new prevention scheme but we must start to prosecute those responsible for this barbaric practice.
“The physical and mental trauma this disgusting practice causes is heart-breaking for the victims.
