In the Media: A loophole in the slavery bill could allow companies to hide supply chain abuses

From: The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/)

“At the moment, the UK parliament is discussing a modern slavery bill, which the government says will hold big business to account and force companies to keep their supply chains slave free. To do this, it has included a transparency in supply chain (Tisc) clause into the bill, which this week is being debated again in the Lords.”
__

“The Tisc clause will require companies carrying out all or some of their business in the UK to report on steps they are taking to identify and prevent slavery in the goods and services produced, used or brought back to the UK. But, as it is currently drafted, it does not require companies in the UK to report on all the supply chains in their groups overseas, such as those of wholly owned subsidiaries abroad.”
