Britain was one of the first European countries to pass legislation prohibiting racial discrimination. There has been a series of Acts in 1965, 1968, 1976, 2000, 2006 and 2010 which introduced, strengthened and extended measures to prevent discrimination. These Acts responded to the accumulating evidence that migrants, especially those from new Commonwealth countries, had disproportionately high rates of unemployment and disadvantage in the labour and housing markets, and were the victims of racial prejudice and discrimination.
