The Government intends to respond to the recommendations of the Council of

Europe Experts on Action Against Trafficking (GRETA) Report shortly.

Since September 2012, the Government has made significant progress in

tackling modern slavery, including human trafficking, and the response will fully

reflect our progress to date. This includes introducing a world-leading

Modern Slavery Bill to Parliament, publishing a comprehensive modern slavery

strategy, trialling child trafficking advocates to better protect child victims

and thoroughly reviewing the identification and support of victims through the

National Referral Mechanism.
