How radical is the coalition’s Modern Slavery Bill? On this week’s View from 22 podcast, the Labour MP Frank Field discusses the government’s efforts to clamp down on slavery and human trafficking with Isabel Hardman. Will the result be a Tory victory, a coalition win or a cross-party effort? Is Theresa May lacking the gumption to block slavery in the supply chain, or are David Cameron and George Osborne worried it will be seen as too anti-business?
