FLEX Parliamentary Briefing, Modern Slavery Bill, House of Lords Report Stage

February 2015

FLEX Parliamentary Briefing including recommendations for the UK Modern Slavery Bill at Lords Report Stage in the Houses of Parliament. This briefing calls for the Gangmasters’ Licensing Authority (GLA) and Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate to have their resources increased in order that they might conduct pro-active labour inspection to prevent trafficking for labour exploitation. The briefing called for the GLA to have its remit extended to all ‘high-risk’ labour sectors in order to ensure its licensing standards cover all vulnerable workers.
