HC Deb 24 February 1972 vol 831 c336W
41. Mr. John Hall

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many complaints have been referred to the Race Relations Board; and what is the percentage of cases where discrimination was proved.

Mr. Sharples

From 26th November, 1968, to the end of last year the Board dealt with 3,423 cases. 1,287 cases were outside the scope of the Act or were withdrawn. An opinion that discrimination had occurred was formed in 25.8 per cent. of the remainder.
