Jo Stevens comments on the ECB’s action plan to tackle racism in cricket

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, commenting on the ECB’s 12-point action plan to tackle racism in cricket, said:

“The report today is a reminder of previous ECB failures to get a grip on the racism scandal engulfing cricket.

“Many of the measures listed should have been in place years ago. Players, staff and fans will struggle to have faith in a process which is being overseen by the same people who have stood by for so long.

“What we need is a proper independent inquiry to encourage victims to come forward for real changes to be made across cricket.”
