In July 2018, the government commissioned Frank Field MP, Maria Miller MP and Baroness Butler-Sloss to undertake an independent review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
The review considered specific provisions in the Modern Slavery Act 2015: the role of the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner, transparency in supply chains, Independent Child Trafficking Advocates and legal application of the Modern Slavery Act.
The final review report was laid in Parliament on 22 May 2019.
The government response to the independent review sets out how the government intends to respond to the recommendations made by the review.
Alongside the response to the independent review, the government has launched a consultation on transparency in supply chains.
Further information, including the terms of reference for the review and copies of the review’s interim reports, is available on GOV.UK.
Information is also available on the review’s website, including the expert advisers’ reports used to inform the reviewers’ recommendations.
