Theresa May suggests government acting in ‘bad faith’ over modern slavery provisions in illegal migration bill

In the report stage debate today on the illegal migration bill, former prime minister Theresa May suggested the immigration minister of Robert Jenrick was not acting in “good faith” over the government’s approach to modern slavery.

Mrs May said: “Amendment 95 … far from making the provisions better for the victims of modern slavery, makes it worse. And I believe that my right honourable friend was talking to me in good faith. But I have to say, it’s hard to see this government amendment 95 as an example of good faith”
