UK: Modern Slavery (Transparency in Supply Chains) Bill

The Modern Slavery (Transparency in Supply Chains) Bill was introduced in the House of Lords earlier this week and received its first reading: see here. A copy of the Bill, as introduced by Baroness Hamwee (on behalf of Baroness Young of Hornsey) as a Private Members' Bill, is available here and here (pdf). The Bill will, amongst other things, amend section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 in order to require publication of the 'slavery and human trafficking statement' in companies' annual reports.
