HC Deb 11 March 1982 vol 19 c463W
Mr. Stanbrook

asked the Prime Minister whether it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to designate a Minister in each Department as specifically responsible for race relations; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

No. My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary is responsible for these matters in so far as the Government have a role. Ministers in charge of some other Departments have an interest, and I leave it to my Cabinet colleagues to make their own arrangements for the allocation of work between junior Ministers in their Departments.
