Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 6 December 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on its commitment in its Programme for Government to appoint a race equality framework adviser to help implement the actions in the Race Equality Framework.

Answered by: Angela Constance 7 December 2016

I am pleased to announce that the Scottish Government has today confirmed the appointment of Kaliani Lyle as the independent Race Equality Framework Adviser.

Ms Lyle stepped down as Scotland’s Commissioner for Equality Human Rights Commission (EHRC) earlier this year and is a former member of the Christie Commission.

Ms Lyle’s role will be to provide strategic independent expertise, insight, and advice to the Scottish Government as we implement the actions in the Race Equality Framework.
