I am pleased to announce that I have been elected Co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, alongside Co-chair Baroness Butler-Sloss and Vice Chairs Jess Phillips, Andrew Selous and Sarah Champion.

Working with The Human Trafficking Foundation, we aim to raise awareness of the scale and effects of human trafficking into the UK and EU; to seek solutions to reduce supply and demand and to improve welfare provisions for victims.

I am excited to work with this group to ensure more efficient legislation is put in place. We must ensure vulnerable people stop slipping through the cracks of society into these horrifying situations of modern day slavery.
