This document provides a review of human trafficking legislation in England and Wales, which was a commitment made when the human trafficking strategy was published in July 2011.

The review identifies three areas where legislation in England and Wales could be strengthened. New legislation is already being introduced in two of these areas, while the third identified area relates to the unduly lenient sentence regime, which we intend to address as part of this review.
