LONDON - As part of its new investigation into fast fashion, the UK's Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) is calling on the government to install a 'fashion czar' to stamp out noncompliance with employment laws.

EAC chairman Philip Dunne MP is suggesting the appointment of a 'garment trade adjudicator' to address controversies such as reported breaches of the minimum wage in the Leicester supply factories of fast fashion retailer Boohoo.

“It is abundantly clear that voluntary corporate social responsibility initiatives are not leading to sufficient progress being made,” said Dunne in a letter to Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng.
