LETTER : Blacks kept out of the top jobs

Sir: British democracy cannot seriously address the black community's high unemployment, poor housing, and low academic achievement (report, 15 March), until it is representative of society. There are only six black MPs out of a total of 651, no black High Court judges, and only two black civil servants out of 805 in the highest Civil Service grades.
