Government’s response to Lammy Review

The Government has today responded to the review of Black, Asian and minority ethnic people’s treatment and outcomes in the criminal justice system, outlining the actions it has taken or will take in relation to each recommendation. As a key principle from the review, the Government has adopted “explain or change” as an approach to identify and objectively assess disparities, and then decide whether and how changes need to be applied. The response is available here and a copy of the Lammy Review, published in Sept 2017, is available here.
