Deputy Prime Minister: Scarman Lecture on race equality

The Deputy Prime Minister delivered the Scarman Lecture, hosted by the People Can charity, in Brixton on 24 November 2011.

In his speech, Nick Clegg said:

‘There is another front in the war on race inequality that is too often neglected: Economic opportunity’.

And he confirmed:

‘The Equality Act is a cornerstone of the UK’s culture of fairness. It isn’t there for employers to pick and choose from. And it is not going away’.
