Runnymede research on the impact of the 2015 budget for BME people

In July 2015, the Runnymede Trust published research into the impact of the 2015 budget on Britain’s BME citizens.

It finds that four million minority ethnic people could be made worse off due to a range of budget measures that have a negative and disproportionate impact on BME people.

The report’s author, Dr Omar Khan, director of the Runnymede Trust, says that even taking into account the rising national minimum wage, BME people will be left with less money, and this could increase racial inequality.
