Description

David Cameron has brought in Labour’s David Lammy to lead a government review of racism in the justice system, amid concern at the disproportionate number of black men locked up in British prisons. Mr Lammy, the MP for Tottenham in north-east London where the 2011 riots began, will investigate evidence of discrimination against black defendants as well as other ethnic minorities.
