Theresa May strategy to tackle modern day slavery

Theresa May has announced a 3 part strategy to attack modern day slavery in Britain. In an article for the Sunday Telegraph she commits to personally chairing a new Cabinet task force which will be set up to ensure the year-old Modern Slavery Act continues to work on driving out abuse. Secondly she will work with international agencies to lead the fight on the global stage, including allocating £33million from the aid budget to create a 5 year International Modern Slavery Fund, focused on high-risk countries, from where it is known that victims are regularly trafficked to the UK. Thirdly she wants pressure to be put on police forces that are failing to take the modern slavery trade seriously.
