To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate she has made of the proportion of businesses with a turnover of £36 million or more which are complying with the provisions of section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

The Government has not estimated what proportion of businesses have complied so far. We published guidance in October 2015 advising that businesses should report as soon as reasonably practicable after their financial year end, which in practice should mean within six months of an organisation’s financial year end.

hi there,

I run a social enterprise that has created a voluntary, open data registry for modern slavery statements and associated data, We voluntarily report to the Home Office quarterly on compliance levels on the data we have collated. We would happily meet with you to discuss our data in more detail if you find this helpful. Our contact details are on the site.
