Public sector agencies have until the end of this month to publish their plan to promote race equality, a government minister has warned.

Race equality schemes will have to be produced by councils, Whitehall and even the BBC, under the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000.

Home Office minister Angela Eagle said: 'This government is determined to encourage a truly diverse society where people from different ethnic backgrounds can live and work together.

'Britain's Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 is the most far-reaching reform of race law in Britain for 30 years. It gives the public greater protection.'
