The Launch of The Lammy Review Report.
Following his guest appearance in July, the Rt Hon David Lammy MP returns to the RSA to launch his report into the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals in the Criminal Justice System (CJS)
Commissioned by the Prime Minister to undertake an independent review in 2016, last November David published his interim findings alongside an in-depth analysis which identified some of the stages in the CJS at which disproportionality is most pronounced. Among other notable points, the analysis evidenced that black men and women are sentenced more harshly than white men and women for committing the same type of crime.
Having now completed his review, David will share his further findings and set out the recommendations he believes can ultimately make sure the CJS is fair for all.
