PMQ on corporate governance and BAME board members
At Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday 30th November I asked the Prime Minister about the Culture Secretary blocking a minority ethnic woman being appointed to the Channel 4 board.
I asked: "Yesterday the Prime Minister's Government published a Green Paper on corporate governance emphasising the importance of gender and racial diversity. Why then has her Secretary of State for Culture, Media & Sport blocked the appointment of a black woman to the Channel 4 board. Does she think there is not a woman or a black person in this country worthy of being on the board of Channel 4?" You can watch my question and the Prime Minister's reply here from 12:33 onwards.
