Inquiry announced on 20th anniversary of Macpherson report

24 October 2018

Home Affairs Committee announces inquiry on 20th anniversary of the Macpherson report.

February 2019 will mark 20 years since the report of the Stephen Lawrence inquiry chaired by Sir William Macpherson. The Committee has decided to launch an inquiry to revisit the issues that Sir William properly prioritised two decades ago, to assess progress against Sir William's recommendations on racism and policing over the last twenty years and to consider what more needs to be done - including on police diversity and community confidence. The Committee is currently seeking views on the terms of reference.
