HC Deb 23 March 1999 vol 328 c178W
Mr. Efford

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will publish the Government's response to the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry report; and if he will make a statement. [78580]

Mr. Straw

I am today publishing an Action Plan setting out how the Government propose that the Report's recommendations will be taken forward. For each of the areas covered by the recommendations of the Inquiry, the plan sets out the main programme of work, who will have the lead responsibility for taking the work forward, and how we will review and assess the outcomes of the work. This is the beginning of the process, and we will revise and develop the plan as the work proceeds. There will be a full day's debate in the House on these issues on Monday 29 March.
