Britain is doing too little for nonwhites, study says

A parliamentary report accused the British government of doing too little to combat racial disadvantages faced by Britain's 1.9 million nonwhites, particularly in riot-torn Liverpool. The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee condemned the Interior Ministry for taking an "essentially passive role of spectator" instead of countering minority problems.

The committee suggested the government study racial disadvantage and train teachers for multiracial education; that all firms consider declaring themselves equal-opportunity employ ers; and that police recruit more minorities as officers.
