British Conservatives Seek to Amend Anti-bias Bill to Cover Race, Religion

May 2, 1968
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An amendment to Britain’s race relations bill that would broaden its scope by banning discrimination on grounds of religion, race and sex as well as color, was introduced in Parliament today by Quinton Hogg, Opposition spokesman on home affairs. The amendment, one of several designed to broaden and strengthen the measure, would afford protection to Jews and other racial minorities. British Jewry, on the whole, has supported the bill on principle even though in its present form it is limited to discrimination on grounds of color.
