“This report sets out the scale of the structural racism that BME people continue to face. It should never have been withheld.
“Ministers must now act to prevent more unnecessary coronavirus deaths among BME communities.
“We need a fully funded action plan to tackle the structural racism that continues to blight BME people’s life chances and health.”
