Layla Moran MP has responded to the publication of Public Health England's follow up report on the impact of Covid-19 on BAME communities, which includes recommendations from the stakeholders consulted.
Responding to the report on the impact of Covid-19 on BAME communities, Liberal Democrat leadership candidate Layla Moran said: "It is astonishing that the government chose to sit on this report for two weeks and had to be shamed into publishing it.
"It shines a light on how discrimination and structural racism have been a root cause behind the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on BAME communities.
"Clear recommendations are set out to tackle these inequalities, including scrapping the government's cruel policy on no recourse to public funds that has left migrants without the support they need. The government must implement these changes now, instead of kicking them into the long grass and waiting for yet another review."
