Review of Modern Slavery Act 2015

This summer saw the first step in reviewing the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (MSA), after a damning report estimated the annual UK economic and social cost of slavery to be £4.3billion.

The aim of the review is to report on the operation and effectiveness of the MSA, along with potential improvements. In particular, the report will examine the meaning of exploitation, the statutory defence, independent child trafficking advocates and several other sections of the MSA. The report is due to be presented to the Home Secretary by March 2019 and later presented to Parliament
