That this House recognises concerns around the exploitation of workers, particularly agency staff employed by UK hotels; welcomes, in the lead up to the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Staff Wanted Initiative, launched by Anti-Slavery International and the Institute for Human Rights and Business, which seeks to raise awareness of the challenges facing the industry with regard to fair treatment of staff and agency workers; and reminds all hotels, big and small, of the need for effective human rights due diligence to ensure that they are not complicit in abuse and to ensure that working practices respect their workforce, consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
