The Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities said family structure and social class had a bigger impact than race on how people's lives turned out.

Campaigners said it laid the blame for inequality on individuals and families.

And Labour has accused the government of downplaying institutional racism.

Newsnight’s Political Editor Nick Watt reports. Katie Razzall is joined by Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities member Samir Shah, Policy Exchange's Calvin Robinson, Labour MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy and journalist Nadine Batchelor-Hunt.
