Britain's Ethnic Minorities.
Central Office of Information, London (England).
This pamphlet discusses the situation of ethnic minorities--particularly those of Caribbean, Asian, or African origin--in the United Kingdom. Following introductory material, the background to immigration in Britain is described and the numbers and geographic distribution of the different ethnic groups are discussed. Next comes a general discussion of the social disadvantages faced by minorities, the extent of racial and ethnic discrimination, and government efforts to deal with both. Race relations legislation is then described, as are special measures to combat racial and ethnic disadvantage in employment, education, health, and housing. Efforts to improve relations between the police and ethnic minorities are discussed. There is a brief description of the press and broadcasting services for ethnic minorities and of arts activities undertaken by newcomers. The pamphlet ends with a listing of relevant government departments, statutory bodies, and organizations, and a bibliography of both government and nongovernment publications. (CMG)
