Race Disparity Audit inquiry

Inquiry

Government response published

The Women and Equalities Committee is launching an inquiry to look at the results of the recently published Race Disparity Audit (Oct 2017).

The audit uses published Government data to examine how people of different ethnicities are treated across public services in areas including health, education, employment and the criminal justice system.

The inquiry will consider:

  • how the audit results should affect future approaches to collecting and analysing data on equalities and outcomes
  • how the Government should take forward its policy response to the published data
  • what the data shows about priorities for addressing disparities.
