Question for Home Office

UIN 112716, tabled on 13 November 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many times the civil proceedings for an injunction provision under Section 54(11) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 has been used since it came into force in March 2016.

No injunctions have yet been used. New legislation takes time to embed and the first year of compliance has just passed. Thousands of statements have been published and the Government wrote to 10,000 businesses who may be required to publish statements to remind them of their obligations. We expect this activity will further increase the number of statements published.
