Race Relations

Volume 450: debated on Thursday 19 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had with the leaders of (a) the Muslim community in Wales and (b) the Commission for Racial Equality in Wales; and if he will make a statement. (95228)

I maintain close and regular contact with the Muslim community in Wales.

During the summer I met representatives from the Bangladeshi community in Cardiff, together with the High Commissioner. Earlier in the year my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary met a visiting group of Muslim women at the House of Commons, led by the Chief Executive of the All-Wales Saheli Association.

The Commission for Racial Equality keeps me regularly updated on its activities in Wales.
