David has represented the people of Tottenham in Parliament since 2000. He is Keir Starmer’s Shadow Secretary of State for Justice, and Shadow Lord Chancellor. The Lammy Review, an independent review into the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people in the UK’s criminal justice system, was published in September 2017. It included 35 wide-ranging policy recommendations for Government and the criminal justice sector. On the recent announcement of Boris Johnson’s new racial inequality commission, Lammy told the Today programme, “I made 35 specific limit recommendations in the Lammy review. Implement them. There are 110 recommendations in the Angiolini review into deaths into police custody. Implement them. There are 30 recommendations in the Home Office review into the Windrush scandal. Implement them. There are 26 in Baroness McGregor-Smith’s review into workplace discrimination. Implement them. That’s what Boris has to do. And then the Black Lives Matter protests can stop and we can get on with dealing with coronavirus.” David is a prominent and successful campaigner for social justice. Results of his many successful campaigns range from the securing of compensation from the government for Windrush British citizens to the introduction of ambitious diversity targets at the BBC and improved access to Oxbridge for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. He has been at the forefront of the fight for justice for the Grenfell families.Chair: Liz Moseley, Editor and Partner, TortoiseHow does a digital ThinkIn work?A digital ThinkIn is like a video conference, hosted by a Tortoise editor, that takes place at the advertised time of the event.
