A senior policy adviser to London mayor Ken
Livingstone told a conference last week that the public sector was
failing to address inequalities as a service provider and an
employer of ethnic minorities.
Drawing on a report by the
Greater London Authority, Lee Jasper said the low numbers of people
from ethnic minorities in managerial positions affected service
delivery and raised questions about how effective the public sector
has been in implementing equal opportunities policies.
