Evidence of modern slavery will be needed.
Home Secretary Suella Braverman said: “We must stop people exploiting our laws.
“It’s unfair genuine victims of modern slavery may be left waiting longer due to abuse of the system.”
It comes as the Home Secretary asks peers to back “proper penalties” for disruptive protesters in a planned law to curb guerilla tactics used by groups such as Just Stop Oil and Extinction Rebellion.
She added: “Enough is enough.
“Blocking motorways and slow walking in roads delays our life-saving emergency services, stops people getting to work and drains police resources.
“Around 75 days of Just Stop Oil action alone cost the taxpayer £12.5 million in policing response.
“This is simply not fair on the British public.”
