The government published its formal response on 18 October 2007. Detailed proposals for the delivery of improved outcomes for young black people were published on 13 December 2007, which set out the governance and reporting arrangements for delivering the government’s commitments. One of the commitments made was to provide the committee with an annual report of progress in each year up to 2011. This is the first annual report.”
