To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, on what date her Department will introduce an all-encompassing cross-Government governance structure for tackling modern slavery.
Answer (Victoria Atkins)
Modern slavery is a barbaric crime that destroys the lives of victims across the globe.
The Government has a co-ordinated policy and operational response, with a Modern Slavery Taskforce chaired by the Prime Minister.
We have noted the recommendations from the National Audit Office - including in this area - and have already responded publicly to a number of them. The report will be further considered by the Prime Minister's Modern Slavery Taskforce.
