Ministry of Justice: Lammy Review – Government Response

The Government has responded to the review of Black, Asian and minority ethnic people’s treatment and outcomes in the criminal justice system, in December 2017.

The review, chaired by Rt Hon David Lammy MP, was commissioned by the Government in 2016 and published in September 2017.

In the response, the Government will:

  • Commit to publish more and better data on race and ethnicity, including on the working of the courts, victims and offender management
  • Set up a Race and Ethnicity Board with similar scope to David Lammy’s review
