This report highlights both the scale and the gravity of the problem of modern slavery

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to a new independent review of the Modern Slavery Act, said “This report highlights both the scale and the gravity of the problem of modern slavery.

“The detailed recommendations must be closely examined by Ministers, and there should be no delay in implementation.

“The Government must also explain how they will provide the necessary resources, given the strains already placed on police and law enforcement agencies.”
