TACKLING RACIAL INEQUALITY TO BUILD A COUNTRY THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE

The Prime Minister is launching an unprecedented audit of public services to help end the burning injustices many people face across Britain.

It will highlight the differences in outcomes for people of different backgrounds, in every area from health to education, childcare to welfare, employment, skills and criminal justice. If you are from a Black Caribbean background, for example, you are three times more likely to be permanently excluded from school than your peers. 

Whilst this audit will reveal difficult truths, we should not be apologetic about shining a light on injustices as never before. It is only by doing so we can make this country work for everyone, not just a privileged few.
