In July 2018, the Government commissioned an Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 led by Baroness Butler-Sloss, the Rt. Hon. Frank Field and the Rt. Hon. Maria Miller MP. The Review considered where the Act is working well and where implementation can be strengthened. The Government welcomed the findings of the Review and we responded formally in July 2019. The Government accepted or partially accepted the majority of the Review’s 80 recommendations and we are taking action to implement these recommendations.
