Urgent Question: Impact of Covid on BAME Communities

In the virtual chamber for an Urgent Question on the disproportionate impact of Covid on BAME communities, and I asked about the economic implications of this. Studies demonstrate lower average wage rates, and coupling this with higher rates of covid mortality among some communities, it is clear more data is needed in order to best move forward.


The Minister has an issue with me raising the shameful policies towards those with no recourse to public funds. She has perhaps not met people trying to navigate their way through this ridiculous system which recently caused hideous worry for constituents in East Renfrewshire, needlessly and wrongfully. We can do better than this.
