Why a UK committed to ending modern slavery needs to return to pre-2012 Overseas Domestic Worker visa

In 2012, the Coalition government introduced restrictions which removed holders of overseas domestic workers visa the right to renew visa. This change facilitates the abuse and undermines the stated commitment to address slavery. 5 Years after the Modern Slavery Act and 8 Years after on the visa were removed, it is time to return to the original overseas domestic worker visa and associated rights.
