star this property answer text <p>The Government takes all hate crime very seriously. Those who commit hate crimes attack the fundamental values that underpin our diverse society, values of acceptance and respect for others. The cross Government hate crime action plan covers all five monitored strands of hate crime, race, religion, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. Religion in this context includes people defined by reference to their religious belief or lack of religious belief.</p><p>This includes Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Christians, and different sects within a religion. It also includes people who have changed faith and people who do not hold any religious beliefs. We are working in partnership with a number of organisations including Streetwise and the Anne Frank Trust to raise awareness of hate crimes including religiously motivated hate crimes and the importance of reporting incidents. The Government does not currently collect data on crimes motivated by anti-apostasy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office sponsors the National Referral Mechanism to provide support to victims of modern slavery offences, whilst support for workers who have experienced exploitative treatment from employers and employment agencies is available from other enforcement authorities across Government, including the HMRC national minimum wage team, the BEIS Employment Agency Standards' Inspectorate and the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority. All potential adult victims of Modern Slavery, including those who suffer labour exploitation, are able to access a tailored and specialised package of care and support through the £40m government-funded Salvation Army victim care contract.</p><p>The Modern Slavery Act 2015 consolidated and strengthened modern slavery offences and introduced a world-leading provision which requires all commercial organisations operating in the UK with a turnover above £36m to set out what steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery in their business and supply chains. This transparency will drive improvements in tackling modern slavery throughout the business community.</p><p>The Immigration Act 2016 established the Director of Labour Market Enforcement to provide closer integration between the authorities responsible for enforcing labour market protections and a stronger intelligence capability, reformed the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority with new powers to investigate labour market offences wherever they occur in the economy, and stronger sanctions for non-compliant businesses. The Immigration Act 2016 also includes new powers to tackle employers of migrants working illegally on the UK.</p>
