Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House commends the French government for organising Europe's first national day in remembrance of the millions of victims of slavery; recognises that the UK also allowed slavery and slave-trading before becoming one of the first countries to make slavery illegal and help end the trade on the high seas; further recognises that significant amounts of the United Kingdom's national wealth was built upon the efforts of slaves; notes with regret that the UK has no national day of remembrance for the victims of slavery; further notes that slavery and other types of indentured labour still exist across the world; and calls for a determined effort by all governments to stamp out such practices.
