Modern Slavery Debate

In the House of Commons today, I spoke during the Backbench Business debate on the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, which I’m very grateful to Vernon Coaker, the Member of Parliament for Gedling, for securing as it’s an issue which is very important to me.

One of the biggest issues with Modern Slavery is a lack of awareness, with 1 of 10 not knowing what it is and 2 in 3 not knowing how to recognise it, so I talked about this and what we can do to improve the situation, and allow the Act to make the difference it intended.
