LONDON – The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee in the UK has written to major stakeholders in industries including fashion and retail as part of its inquiry into the use of Uyghur Muslims as forced labour in China’s Xinjiang region.  

The recent Uyghurs for Sale report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) tied companies – including Adidas, H&M, Nike, Boohoo and Zara – to factories in which it’s believed these minorities are being held in maximum-security facilities and forced to work for little to no pay 

Ahead of a public hearing next month, the BEIS Committee has addressed individual letters to these businesses and more, requesting written feedback on how exactly each maintains visibility and combats modern slavery within their supply chains. A representative of each company is also invited to give oral evidence at a virtual public hearing on November 5th.
