ETHNIC SHORTFALL IN PUBLIC JOBS

The Guardian (p17) carries a feature on ethnic employment in the legal profession, the police, armed forces and civil service. The figures are not encouraging for Britain's ethnic minorities. Apparently, in quango-land, as The Guardian dubs it, the Commissioner for Public Appointments recently found that black and Asian people filled only 4.7 per cent of 1,753 surveyed appointments - none of them as chair.

Labour MP Keith Vaz is quoted: 'It highlights the problem that, 25 years after mass immigration into this country, when the black and Asian communities should be taking their place in public-policy employment, it is clearly not happening.'
