Lord Burlison

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they expect the report produced by the independent Race Monitor under Section 19E of the Race Relations Act 1976 to be published. [HL3883]

Baroness Scotland of Asthal

The Home Secretary has today laid in another place a copy of the annual report produced by Mary Coussey, the independent Race Monitor, under Section 19E of the Race Relations Act 1976, together with his reponse. The Race Monitor has a statutory duty to report to Parliament via the Home Secretary on ministerial authorisations made under Section 19D of the Race Relations Act enabling immigration staff to discriminate on the basis of nationality or ethnic or national origin in the exercise of their functions.
