The Exhibition

Modern Day Slavery: the Hidden Agenda was on between 22-26 April 2013 in the Upper Waiting Hall of the House of Commons, a busy thoroughfare for Members of Parliament and the public on their way to meetings in the Committee Room Corridor.

The aim of the exhibition was to raise awareness amongst MPs about modern day slavery showing that it can be found in all UK constituencies. 103 MPs attended, the Prime Minister opened the exhibition and the Minister responsible for Human Trafficking, Mark Harper, was one of a host of high profile MPs. Representatives from the Home Office and the FCO also attended the launch. 

The Prime Minister made clear in his opening speech that the Government is committed to 'crush and stamp out' modern day slavery.

Two tea chests containing information about the scope and nature of modern day slavery in the UK, as well as a collection of real stories of human trafficking survivors, formed part of the exhibition:
