Motion text

That this House commends the organisations, War on Want and Labour Behind the Label for their work on their Taking Liberties report in drawing attention to the living and working conditions of many of those producing clothing for our high street; notes that temporary contracts, systematic exclusion from social security benefits, repression of trade union organising and problems in accessing state provision of basic services mean workers have the most basic of social and economic liberties taken from them; and recognises that there remains an urgent need for retailers to ensure that workers are paid a living wage.
