Cardinal Nichols welcomes new Act to tackle modern slavery


The Modern Slavery Bill received Royal Assent yesterday.

Cardinal Nichols, president of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, said: “I welcome the Modern Slavery Act 2015 as the Bill receives Royal Assent today. While no Act can cover everything in the serious criminal activity of human trafficking and modern slavery, which abuses vulnerable people, the enhanced support and protection for victims is particularly to be welcomed.
