Caste Discrimination

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what steps she is taking to address caste discrimination in the UK; and if she will make a statement. (110207)

I have noted the contents of the report “No Escape: Caste discrimination in the UK”, which my hon. Friend kindly sent me. I have asked my officials in the Cohesion and Faiths Unit to consider, in consultation with stakeholders, what evidence there is of caste based discrimination in the UK and whether any action may be required.
