Time for action on structural racism

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, commenting on the appointment of Tony Sewell to lead the government’s race commission, said:

“It’s time for action on the structural racism that we already know exists. Much of the evidence that Dr Sewell will review has already been presented to the government.

“His first priority should be to understand why the many recommendations made from reviews and investigations in recent years are yet to be implemented by the government.”
