Read more about our decision to launch the sub-inquires here.

In this sub-inquiry, the Committee wants to explore the pre-existing inequalities facing BAME people and how these inequalities have impacted on their vulnerability to the virus. The Committee is also interested in solutions to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic on BAME people. The Committee is particularly keen to hear from BAME people throughout this sub-inquiry.
