NSW State government delays for 2 years enacting legislation to combat modern slavery

The NSW state government and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian strongly supported the bill but, two years on, it has not been enacted.

Listen to Barrister Michael McAuley, President of the St Thomas More Society discuss the delay in enacting the legislation:
