Modern Slavery Bill - Lords 2nd reading - 13 Nov 2014

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

This briefing has been prepared on behalf of a coalition of corporate accountability, fair trade, development and anti-slavery groups who are campaigning for effective measures on supply chain transparency to be included in the Bill.

The coalition strongly supports the Government’s introduction at Report Stage in the House of Commons of a measure to address transparency in the supply chain in respect of modern slavery. However, the Bill’s amendment must be strengthened in several areas if it is to be effective, including: i) coverage, ii) minimum requirements of the provision, iii) reporting requirements, and iv) monitoring and enforcement.
