Ministerial Correction

Tuesday 27 April 2021

Government Equalities

Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities

The following is an extract from the oral statement on the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities report.

[Official Report, 20 April 2021, Vol. 692, c. 881.]

Letter of correction from the Minister for Equalities, the hon. Member for Saffron Walden (Kemi Badenoch).

An error has been identified in my response to the hon. Member for Streatham (Bell Ribeiro-Addy).

The correct response should have been:

The actual figure is not 25% of black women, but 0.34%. It is a very confusing statistic because we often represent the numbers in terms of numbers per 100,000.
