The audit website: https://www.ethnicity-facts-figures.service.gov.uk/

THERESA May will challenge society to “explain or change” significant differences in the life outcomes of British ethnic minority and white people revealed in the Government’s racial disparity audit.

The Prime Minister will tell government, business, police and other institutions they have “nowhere to hide” and must help ensure race is never a barrier to people achieving their goals in life.

The audit will lay bare on a new Ethnicity Facts and Figures website at 12.30pm today how people of different races are treated in areas including health, education, employment and the criminal justice system.
