LONDON - MPs say the British government has rejected most of their calls for action to ensure forced labour in the Xinjiang region of China plays no part in the supply chains of UK companies.

The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee had called on the government to toughen anti-modern slavery laws and develop new measures to address human rights abuses in Xinjiang which supplies a fifth of the world's cotton.

However, it says the government's response refuses to commit to "clear timeframes and substantive actions" in response to the majority of the committee's recommendations.
