Women and Equalities Committee

Race Disparity Audit inquiry

Inquiry status: open

The deadline for written submissions was Monday 27 November 2017. If you would like to send a submission, please contact the Committee staff.

Scope of the inquiry

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.
Terms of reference: Race Disparity Audit
