Diane Abbott heads re-established cross party group on race
16 June 2010
Westminster’s only All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) dedicated to race equality was formally re-established this morning after being inactive since 2005.
The group – for which Runnymede acts as secretariat – held its AGM on 16 June, which was attended by 13 parliamentarians across all three major parties including the group’s chair and Labour leadership candidate Diane Abbott MP.
Other attendees included deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats Simon Hughes MP and Conservative peer Lord Sheikh.
At the meeting, parliamentarians discussed possibilities for the future work of the group. Ideas for areas of focus included right wing extremism, islamophobia, implementation of the Equality Act and social policy issues such as education and social care.
Future meetings of the group will be confirmed shortly. Full details of the group and a full list of members is available on our dedicated APPG on Race and Community page.
