Anti-Slavery Day 2011

EDM number 2257 in 2010-12, proposed by Mark Hendrick on 17/10/2011.
Categorised under the topic of Human rights.

That this House marks on 18 October 2011 the UK Anti-Slavery Day and the European Union's Anti-Trafficking Day; notes with profound regret that far from being resigned to the history books, slavery is still a major problem with at least 12 million people around the world enslaved today according toa United Nations' estimate; further notes that the actual number of people who are enslaved is likely to be far greater; recognises that slavery is still a problem in the UK, with domestic servitude and forced prostitution being amongst the most common forms of slavery found in this country; further notes that greater steps need to be taken to ensure that the London 2012 Olympic Games do not provide opportunities for criminals to enslave and traffick more people into the UK; and calls on the Government to take a pro-active approach to tackling the issue of slavery and human trafficking both in the UK and abroad.

This motion has been signed by a total of 76 MPs.
