HC Deb 11 February 1980 vol 978 cc443-4W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Minister for the Civil Service what plans he has to monitor any possible racial discrimination in the recruitment, job placement, reports on individuals and promotion of Civil Service staff; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Channon

As the hon. Member will know from my reply of 22 October 1979 to the hon. Member for Lambeth, Central (Mr. Tilley)—[Vol. 972, c. 11]—a joint working party with the unions has been established to consider the monitoring of race relations policy in the Civil Service. It has not yet reached any conclusions.
