HL Deb 29 March 2000 vol 611 cc75-6WA
Baroness Whitaker

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What targets relate to ethnic minority achievement in their 1999 National Action Plan introduced under Title VIII of the Treaty of Amsterdam. [HL1641]

The Minister of State, Department of Education and Employment (Baroness Blackstone)

There are no common EU targets relating to ethnic minorities. However, progress towards achieving equality of opportunity features throughout the UK Action Plan, as well as references to specific initiatives to promote further integration of ethnic minorities into the labour market.
