Consultation description

This is a triennial review of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority.

This is part of government’s rolling programme of triennial reviews of public bodies. These reviews consider whether the functions carried out by the body are still required, and whether the delivery model is right and offers value for money.

The Gangmasters Licensing Authority is a non-departmental public body which was set up in 2005 to protect workers from exploitation. The government has previously determined that the role of GLA is important and its form is appropriate. This triennial review provides an opportunity to examine and confirm those conclusions where appropriate and to focus on ensuring that the governance arrangements of GLA are as effective as possible.

This review will therefore take account of all evidence and stakeholder responses available from previous reviews – including through the Employment Theme of the government’s Red Tape Challenge process and the recent consultation on Changes to the Scope and Governance of the GLA.
