To ask Her Majesty's Government when they expect to bring proposed changes to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 before Parliament; whether these proposals will include fines for companies failing to comply with the legislation; how and when they will introduce export controls in order to prevent exports of goods potentially contributing, either directly or indirectly, to alleged human rights abuses in Xinjiang; and why they decided not to implement the recommendation of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee to produce a whitelist of companies which evidence actions taken to rid their supply chains of forced labour in Xinjiang and a blacklist of firms which fail to do so.
