Motion text

That this House regrets the adverse impact the covid-19 pandemic has had on black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, including the particular impacts on health and social care workers from these communities; echoes, and urges the Prime Minister to accept, the Inquiry Chair’s recommendation that the draft terms of reference for the long-anticipated COVID-19 Inquiry be reframed to put possible inequalities at its forefront so that investigation into any unequal impacts of the pandemic runs through the whole Inquiry; recognises the work of the Federation of Ethnic Minority Healthcare Organisations (FEMHO), a group of individuals, organisations and networks in the health and care sectors who have been impacted by covid-19; notes that FEMHO are uniquely placed to provide insight on the impacts of covid-19 on black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and health and care sector workers; and further calls for FEMHO to be given Core Participant status to allow them to engage with and contribute throughout the COVID-19 Inquiry.
