Commenting on the Lammy Review, Liberal Democrat Shadow Secretary for Justice Jonathan Marks said:
“This thoughtful and comprehensive report exposes the racial biases that still exist in our criminal justice system. Its findings are shocking and prove beyond doubt that innate prejudices, however unintentional, still infect every level of the system.
"The report's findings as to how unfairly the system treats young people are particularly worrying. The Government must consider and respond to this report very carefully. We need a plan for effective and swift action to eliminate the unequal treatment of ethnic minorities within the criminal justice system. Warm words, however well-intentioned, will not do."
