Yardley MP Jess Phillips spoke in a debate focused on the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Despite it being 2017, slavery still exists in our country with the Home Office estimating that there are from the 10,000 to 13,000 slaves in this country.
In the debate, Jess Phillips MP said:
"I thank hon. Members who brought this issue to the Backbench Business Committee—actually, I was on both sides; I just realised as I was saying it that I was thanking myself twice—as it is really important that we debate it.
