Audit triggers extra help to close the ethnic jobs divide

May was visiting Dunraven Sixth Form ahead of the release of the results of a national probe into racial inequality which revealed a growing disparity between white Britons and British minority ethnics.

The first national survey of its kind found huge gulfs in experience of health, housing and education, which also varied based on geography.

Meanwhile, pupils from Chinese and Asian backgrounds are significantly more likely to perform well at primary and secondary school.

Only 54% of white British youngsters and 13% of white Gypsy and Roma children meet the same target.

She said: "What I hope this audit will bring is a change in attitude, so that everyone is treated equally, no matter what their background, and this is never a barrier to getting on in life".

Following the report, ministers will tackle 20 "hotspots" where ethnic minority people are more likely to be unemployed, which could include mentoring, traineeships and offering English, maths and vocational training alongside work placements.

Theresa May warned there would be "nowhere to hide" ahead of the publication of the Government's first "race disparity audit".

The Prime Minister is understood to call on the government and institutions to "explain or change" the disparity.

She will say "these issues are now out in the open" and that the collection of data provides "definitive evidence" of the challenges the United Kingdom still faces to "build a country that works for everyone".

Mr Javid insisted the Conservatives were the right party to tackle issues revealed by the audit, despite their fall in popularity amongst black and minority ethnic voters at June's General Election.

Black men were also the group most likely to have a drug dependency, while black women had a higher expectancy to suffer from mental ill health. The prime minister warned that hard truths would be uncovered.

"That was something where she had the data, analysed it, thought it was unacceptable and just by shining a light on it, it changed practice".

Labour's equalities spokeswoman Dawn Butler said that Mrs May had written to then Prime Minister David Cameron in 2010 warning of the risk that austerity would disproportionately hit minorities. She said that she was determined to root out "burning injustices" and she expected to have a parliamentary majority to make that possible.

Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from London.

David Isaac, chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said the report must be used tackle the "entrenched inequality" in the United Kingdom, and to "set the foundations for real change".

He said some statistics made "uncomfortable reading", but that "unless these things are laid bare we can't begin to resolve them".

One example of the obstacles which could be holding back non-white people can be seen in the stats about how many members of each ethnic group hold a driving licence.
