Marks & Spencer response to SOMO update

We conducted our own investigations into the M&S suppliers named in the SOMO report ‘Captured by Cotton’ and found no evidence to support the claims. We are therefore very confident that there are no cases of ‘Sumangali’ at any of our garment factories in India. ..We take any allegation of a breach of our strict ethical standards very seriously. We do not tolerate abuse of these standards and where we do find problems, we work closely with our suppliers and their workers to put things right.
