Theresa May vows to tackle race inequality in the United Kingdom, releases data

Theresa May is looking to work with police on how they conduct stop and search

Theresa May challenged by black student over stop and search

The Tory MP told Radio 4′s Today programme: "I think there will be people out there today taking note of this, whether they are from black, minority ethnic backgrounds or not, and thinking this is exactly the kind of thing they want their government to do".

The Prime Minister's recent rhetoric around race has attracted criticism, however.

Black and ethnic minority (BME) Britons are nearly twice as likely to be unemployed as white adults, a government-backed review of racial issues in the United Kingdom has revealed.

One example of the obstacles which could be holding back non-white people can be seen in the stats about how many members of each ethnic group hold a driving licence.

By age 11, about half of those of Bangladeshi and Indian origin reached expected academic standards, compared with fewer than a third of white British children, who fared the worst of any group.

'But our concern is the way that the Government has framed these disparities as being about discrimination or racial injustice, implying that there is unfair treatment of ethnic groups when in fact there are many different complex reasons why ethnic groups have different outcomes'.

The review published last month said people from BAME backgrounds make up 25 percent of the prison population in England and Wales and 41 percent of the youth justice system, despite these groups being only 14 percent of the general population.

The Racial Disparity Audit, released today, revealed a number of disparities in attainment between ethnic groups in a number of areas.

Meanwhile, pupils from Chinese and Asian backgrounds are significantly more likely to perform well at primary and secondary school.

White 15-year-olds are four times more likely to smoke than their non-white peers, the survey found. White British adults were more likely to have suicidal thoughts, however.

The audit was commissioned by the prime minister who is expected to challenge British institutions to "explain or change" the disparities and will hold a cabinet discussion with key stakeholders.

"But this audit means that for society as a whole - for the government, for our public services - there is nowhere to hide".

She will say "these issues are now out in the open" and that the collection of data provides "definitive evidence" of the challenges the United Kingdom still faces to "build a country that works for everyone".

Speaking in the Commons shortly after the website's launch, First Secretary Damian Green described the project as a "resource which tells us how well we're doing as a society", adding: "We hope this website will contribute to a better and well-informed debate on ethnicity in our society".

'Britain has come along way in promoting equality and opportunity but what the data we've published today shows is that we still have a way to go if we are going to truly have a country that works for everyone'.
