Bishop of Bristol asks Government about visas routes for those vulnerable to trafficking

On 28th July the Rt Revd Vivienne Faull, Bishop of Bristol, received written answers to three questions on overseas domestic workers, and seasonal  workers (both areas vulnerable to  modern slavery and human trafficking).

 

The Lord Bishop of Bristol: HL6880 To ask Her Majesty’s Government when they intend to publish further details about any changes to the routes of entry to the UK for overseas domestic workers.

Baroness Williams of Trafford: Our broad approach for January 2021 will be to maintain the existing provisions for overseas domestic workers, expanding this route to include EU citizens.


The Lord Bishop of Bristol: HL6881 To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to publish the results of the seasonal workers pilot.

Baroness Williams of Trafford: The outcome of the Seasonal Workers Pilot will be announced in due course.


The Lord Bishop of Bristol: HL6882 To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether overseas domestic workers will still be eligible for visas to work and reside in the UK after 1 January 2021.

Baroness Williams of Trafford: Our broad approach for January 2021 will be to maintain the existing provisions for overseas domestic workers, expanding this route to include EU citizens.
