Tories Name Chief For Prejudice Probe But It’s Not What Boris Johnson Promised
Professor Singh said I’m privileged to have been appointed to chair the independent review into improving handling of complaints of prejudice and discrimination in the Conservative Party. He added:
I am very happy to announce Professor Swaran Singh as the Chair of the independent review into prejudice and discrimination from the Conservative Party.
But the probe won’t be the independent inquiry into Islamophobia that Boris Johnson promised. The Tories have appointed a Human Rights commissioner to chair a probe at the celebration to discrimination and bias.
Instead it will be broader – an independent review into enhancing celebration handling of complaints of all forms of discrimination and prejudice, including Islamophobia.
Professor Swaran Singh, a former Commissioner of Human Rights Commission and the Equality, will chair the question. The Tories say Professor Singh will determines the review’s schedule.
