Prime Minister Theresa May set out a drive to tackle modern slavery in Britain Sunday, pledging more funding and a new cross-government taskforce to help stamp out what she called a "barbaric evil".She made the pledge as a review into the 2015 Modern Slavery Act, pioneered by May in her previous role as interior minister, showed that in 2015, 40 percent more victims had been identified and 14 percent more slavery offences had been prosecuted.Nearly 46 million people are enslaved globally, according to the 2016 Global Slavery Index, which estimated there were 11,700 victims living in Britain.
