Motion text

That this House notes with concern that the Warwick University survey conducted in April 2000 found that 'Black youths stated their No. 1 political issue for not getting involved was the lack of Black politicians'; recommends that all mainstream political parties should demonstrate their willingness to tackle the lack of ethnic minorities both as members within their parties and as elected representatives; and further believes that all political parties should make an explicit commitment to recruit, retain and promote the abundance of talent from within the UK's ethnic minority communities.
