answer text <p>The 2014 Protocol to the Forced Labour Convention includes six specific articles with action for governments. We are confident that the UK already meets the requirements of these six articles in existing laws and regulations, which will be further strengthened through the provisions in the Modern Slavery Bill. UK compliance was thoroughly assessed as part of the negotiations of the Protocol in May and June 2014, at which the UK was represented.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government supports the Protocol to the 2014 Forced Labour Convention and intends to ratify it. A Written Ministerial Statement indicating the Government’s intention to ratify the Protocol was laid before Parliament on 7 January 2015. The Protocol was subsequently laid before Parliament on 6 February and must remain for 21 sitting days to allow scrutiny by both Houses.</p><p>On 24 March, at the end of the 21 sitting days, if neither House has indicated an objection to ratification of the Protocol, the next stage of the process may begin. There will not be sufficient time to complete this process prior to the dissolution of Parliament. However there is no deadline for ratifying the Protocol.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Victims of human trafficking can apply for civil legal aid for advice and representation in relation to immigration matters and for damages and employment claims arising from their trafficking exploitation. Through provisions in the Modern Slavery Bill, victims of slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour will also be eligible for civil legal aid in the same situations.<br><br>The recent review of the National Referral Mechanism recommended that legal aid should be available from the point of referral. The Government has committed to piloting a range of changes to the National Referral Mechanism in light of recommendations made by the review, which will include the provision of legal aid at this earlier point.<br><br>'Matter starts' are the mechanism used by the Legal Aid Agency to monitor the amount of work conducted by its legal aid providers and do not limit legal aid availability for applicants. Where they are eligible, victims of human trafficking will always be able to access legal aid.</p>

answer text <p>The Government is committed to preventing further exploitation of vulnerable individuals who have already been victims of trafficking. Through The Salvation Army adult victim care contract in England and Wales, all potential victims who are referred into the National Referral Mechanism are provided with specialised support for a minimum period of 45 days, in excess of our international obligations. This includes work with victims to plan how they can move on safely to integrate into UK society or to return to their home country, and building resilience to avoid re-trafficking for child victims. We are currently trialling specialist child trafficking advocates who will provide dedicated support and guidance, including promoting the child’s safety and wellbeing, particularly in light of the risk of children going missing and being re-trafficked.</p><p>Implementing the Modern Slavery Strategy and the Modern Slavery Act 2015 will enhance the law enforcement response to trafficking, and help protect individuals from re-trafficking by stopping those who are responsible from exploiting further victims.</p>
