Labour comments on Channel 4’s ‘The Black Maternity Scandal’

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, commenting on Channel 4’s Dispatches programme: The Black Maternity Scandal’, said:

“It is scandalous that Black women are still over four times more likely to die in childbirth than white women.

“The Government’s inaction on this issue is completely unacceptable. They must address this health inequality and this starts with acknowledging structural and institutional racism. We need urgent action on Black maternal health.”
