Gareth Epps welcomes a new report by the Liberal Democrats' race equality taskforce. He says it "the subject of a joint conference on Saturday in London held by Social Liberal Forum (London) and Ethnic Minority Liberal Democrats (EMLD).

(I’m saying a few words too, but don’t let that put you off)." More about the conference here.
