Leading the way on evil traffickers

Published 06/10/2015

As Scotland has just passed into law its very own anti-trafficking legislation, it is worth pointing out Northern Ireland has very clearly led the way.

Thanks to Lord Morrow's ground-breaking Human Trafficking Act, we were the first part of the UK to introduce dedicated anti-slavery laws for nearly 200 years.

Our law here has been acknowledged in debates at Westminster and Holyrood as a template for the other nations to follow.
