Interesting article from Reuters on the forthcoming Modern Slavery Bill, which British politicians are due to vote on before the next general election in May. If it is passed UK companies will be forced to disclose what measure they put in place to tackle slavery in their international supply chains – a response to the extended apparel supply chains operated by many British firms, as well as the terrible events at Rana Plaza in Bangladesh in 2013. But the bill has critics, not least amongst from anti-slavery campaigners who argue it doesn’t go far enough, and is difficult to enforce.
