Ethnic Groups: Equal Opportunities

Volume 465: debated on Thursday 25 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when her Department plans to produce the proposed race equality duty toolkit. (157759)

The Department undertook to work with the Commission for Racial Equality to produce an internal guide for Whitehall Departments on mainstreaming race equality duties. Unfortunately, it proved impossible to agree the content between us before the CRE merged into the new Equality and Human Rights Commission on 1 October 2007. We are continuing to work with the new Commission to determine how best to ensure that Departments can improve their performance.
