§ Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will introduce ethnic monitoring of those subjected to on-the-spot fines. [HL3982]
§ Baroness Scotland of Asthal
Fixed penalty notices for disorder, otherwise known as "on-the-spot" fines, are subject to ethnic monitoring. Police officers are required to record ethnicity on the penalty notice and the statistical returns provided to the Home Office require ethnicity to be identified.
