'But we have no slaves in Scotland…,' says a Scottish law report from 1687. Slavery was formally abolished by the UK Parliament in 1833. Yet slavery is still very much with us and tackled again by recent legislation in Westminster and Holyrood. What forms does it take? What are enforcement agencies and NGOs doing to challenge it? And what role can WE play in stopping it?
