That this House notes with concern the recent Home Office report, Statistics on Race and the Criminal Justice System, that Asians suffered the highest increases in stop and searches rising from 744 in 2001-02 to 2,989 in 2002-03; further notes in total there were 869,164 stop and searches, including the searches under the Terrorism Act 2000; further notes that the percentage of arrests remained at 13 per cent. for the second year and that of all stop and searches, there was 38 per cent. increase in people of Afro Caribbean origin and 36 per cent. increases in people of Asian origin; and calls on the Home Secretary to investigate these issues as a matter of urgency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
