HC Deb 01 March 1973 vol 851 cc392-3W
23. Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has any further proposals aimed at promoting racial harmony; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lane

The Government have substantially increased their grants-in-aid to the Community Relations Commission and the Race Relations Board. My right hon. Friend has recently asked the commission to inquire into adolescent unemployment and homelessness among ethnic minorities. The Home Office is financing, jointly with the Gulbenkian Foundation, a survey by Political and Economic Planning of racial disadvantage.
