We welcome David Lammy’s report. It confirms what many working in and around the criminal justice system have suspected about discrimination and bias; but his analysis, and critically his recommendations, provide the basis for action. The Campus works with young people who have had contact with the criminal justice system and have for some time championed the role of education in providing young people with the opportunities and skills to break away from offending. We are therefore particularly interested in the recommendation around deferring prosecutions to allow for an intervention. David is to be congratulated for his work on this and we call on Government to action his recommendations.
