    • creating a new offence of an aggravated breach of labour market legislation
    • increasing intelligence and data sharing between the existing enforcement bodies
    • widening the remit, increasing the powers and changing the name of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority to enable it to deal with serious exploitation
