Conservatives in action: Prime Minister leads campaign against "barbaric" modern slavery

THE Modern Slavery Bill was introduced to Parliament on 10 June 2014 and became an Act on 26 March 2015. 

It is one of the major initiatives of the Prime Minister Theresa May. "This was the first legislation of this kind in Europe," says Mrs May, "bringing in tough new penalties and enhanced protection and support for victims."

She adds: "Shining a light on this barbaric crime is one of my priorities as Prime Minister."
