The Anti-Slavery Day Bill became law in 2010. It was introduced in Parliament
as a Private Members Bill by Anthony Steen former MP for Totnes, South
Devon, in 2010 and passed through both Houses, unopposed although
amended. The bill defines modern-day slavery as child trafficking, forced
labour, domestic servitude and trafficking for sexual exploitation.
Anti-Slavery Day falls on October 18 each year and provides an opportunity to
draw attention to the subject, raise awareness of modern slavery and to
inspire people to eliminate it.
