Today I will be leading the questioning of big high street-names, including BooHoo, Nike, The North Face, H&M, and, in TikTok, one of the biggest tech companies in the world, about the steps they are taking to ensure they do not benefit from the exploitation of the forced labour of Uighur in the Xinjiang region of China.

There is inconvertible evidence of mass atrocities taking place in Xinjiang. To compound the horror of these acts is the possibility that, here in Britain, consumers may be unknowingly supporting businesses that actually profit from some of the actions taking place in Xinjiang, including the forced labour of Uighurs.
