Proud to have taken the Modern Slavery Act through Parliament

I am so proud to see the landmark Modern Slavery Act, which I took through Parliament, being used to tackle this dreadful crime.

With an estimated over 40 million victims across the world today, this is a matter that we should all see what we can do to stop it.

The new offences that the Act introduced and the measures to protect victims are making a real difference to victims in the UK.

And the world leading, transparency in supply chain measure, requiring companies to report on what they are doing to rout out slavery from their supply chains is helping victims everywhere.
