To ask Her Majesty's Government in light of the report entitled Discrimination in Recruitment: Evidence from a Field Experiment, carried out by the Economic and Social Research Institute of the Republic of Ireland, which demonstrated discrimination against job applicants in the Republic of Ireland with non-Irish names, whether they will add that country to those it monitors for human rights abuses.
