National Curriculum - Question (21 Oct 2020)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, Black History Month was established 33 years ago, and this year there has been a real desire to find out more about our diverse British history. The year 2020 seems like the beginning of the age of enlightenment, when the shackles were broken and eyes were opened. So how do the Government plan to further that interest? Will they consider broadening exam specification choices to...

Youth Unemployment - Private Notice Question (15 Oct 2020)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, thank goodness for that. Black, Asian and culturally diverse people are more likely to be unemployed, and the 16 to 24 year-olds in this group are no exception. They are finding themselves at the very bottom of the pile during this pandemic and are hardest hit, with little hope of finding a job. So what pathways and policies are being put in place beyond the six-month Kickstart...

There will be longer, more polluted and more convoluted traffic journeys and building disruption...

Covid-19 - Statement (3 Sep 2020)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, it has been widely acknowledged that Covid-19 has disproportionately affected the black, Asian and other diverse communities, with many dying—especially men.

What measures, therefore, are the...

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, the coronavirus pandemic has exposed deep inequalities in our society. It has caused so much pain, death and suffering in areas across the country.
