FCO logo Copyright Protected by Law The RT Hon Baroness Anelay has announced in Parliament the update of the UK’s National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights.

“I am pleased that we have today published our updated National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights. The Plan rightly acknowledges the duty of Government but also sets out our expectation that UK businesses will act responsibly and in accordance with the UN Guiding Principles, wherever they operate.

Human Rights are at the heart of both our Diplomats’ and Ministers’ work and this updated National Action Plan clearly restates our conviction that the promotion of business and respect for human rights go hand in hand.”  stated the Rt Hon Baroness Anelay May 13, 2106 © UK Foreign Office
