Description

The Government is to refuse to commit to recruiting more ethnic minority judges, The Independent understands, despite the fact that just 7 per cent currently come from a minority background. Ministers are expected to refuse calls to adopt a clear target for appointing more ethnic minority judges by 2025 when they publish their response to David Lammy’s government review into the treatment of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people in the justice system. The Labour MP had recommended a national target as a key step to increasing diversity in the judiciary.
