Answered By: 
The Mayor

I want to see much stronger protections from exploitation in place, and a much more activist enforcement regime that genuinely roots out bad practice and prosecutes criminal behaviour by employers. I intend to respond to the consultation on the Government's UK Labour Market Enforcement Strategy, which was published in July 2017 and will close on 13 October.
