To ask the First Minister and deputy First Minister for an update on the Racial Equality Strategy.

The Racial Equality Strategy was approved by the Executive and published on 10 December 2015. A key delivery mechanism of the Racial Equality Strategy is the establishment of the Racial Equality Subgroup. The membership has recently been finalised and the inaugural meeting of the Subgroup is currently being arranged. The establishment of Departmental Racial Equality Champions and an associated shared learning forum will facilitate a cohesive approach to establishing appropriate ethnic monitoring. These Champions have been identified and will liaise directly with the Subgroup.
