The Commission for Racial Equality is investigating a sudden rise in disciplinary charges against black employees in six London boroughs, reports The Evening Standard (p17)

The CRE is awaiting responses to a letter demanding explanations before deciding whether to launch full-scale inquiries, says the paper.

The six authorities have not been named but the CRE's action follows criticism of Westminster council during a recent industrial tribunal.

A CRE spokesperson said the six councils were conducting internal inquiries into disciplinary cases following the complaints.

The commission is more likely to allow the present monitoring procedure to continue for several weeks rather than considering the case of the six authorities at its regular policy meeting this month.
