Ajit AtwalAt this Wednesday's Full Council meeting the Liberal Democrat councillors put forward a motion committing the Council to practical measures to help bring about racial equality in Derby.
Councillor Ajit Atwal, who is the Council's Minority Ethnic Communities Champion, proposed the motion. He said, "We want to make sure that where inequality based on race exists, that it is challenged and put right. We also want to help people to spot unconscious bias so it can be eliminated."
The motion was passed, although several councillors failed to vote in favour of it and one from the Reform Derby Party voted against it.
