To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 6 November 2017 to Question 110772, on slavery, what criteria her Department applied when selecting 10,000 businesses to write to reminding them of their obligations and pointing them towards relevant guidance in relation to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

The Home Office estimates that between 9,000 and 11,000 businesses are required to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement. The correspondence was also shared with NGOs and trade associations to share with their members

The Government does not hold a definitive list of eligible organisations and used private sector data to identify relevant businesses and filtered the data based on turnover size. This data is not comprehensive and the Government does not own this data to publish it

I will arrange for a copy of the letter to be placed in the House Library.
