LONDON - Britain is to seek to block the import of goods suspected of being made using forced labour in China’s Xinjiang province where up to two million Uyghur Muslims are being held in so-called 're-education camps'.

It is the latest international response to the alleged use of forced labour in the region which produces around 85 per cent of China's cotton and more than a fifth of global supplies.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, outlining his proposals to MPs in the House of Commons, described human rights abuses in Xinjiang as “harrowing” and said the UK had a “moral duty to respond”.
