Continue our campaigns to eradicate human trafficking and modern slavery

Last updated 3 weeks ago

We will continue our campaigns [...] to eradicate human trafficking and the scourge of modern slavery.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.53

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to continue efforts to eradicate modern slavery, which the government defines as including the crime of human trafficking.
  • In March 2020, the government issued the UK’s first Modern Slavery Statement which included 13 goals for government departments over the coming year to be monitored by a ‘Modern Slavery and Procurement Implementation Group’.
  • The Modern Slavery Statement and new measures resulting from it represent a continuation of efforts “to eradicate human trafficking and modern slavery”, so this policy is ‘done’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
