Having promised on the steps of Number 10 “to make a country that works for everyone”, progress on social reform and the new industrial strategy is expected in the coming weeks.
On Friday, Mrs May launched a review into how ethnic minorities and white working class people are treated by public services such as the NHS, schools, police and the courts. Described as unprecedented, the audit aims to highlight racial and socioeconomic disparities and show how outcomes differ due to background, class, gender and income to “shine a light on injustices”.
Mrs May will chair the first meeting of her social reform committee this Thursday, with housing and racial disparity on the agenda.
There will also be a focus on a new industrial strategy, with the Prime Minister setting out her intention to make the UK the best country for innovative companies to grow, and improving the UK’s ability to turn scientific discoveries into world-beating companies.
