Other measures outlined in the document include:
- Building on the coalition's BAME Access to Finance report to identify ways to encourage more BAME applicants to apply for finance and set up small businesses.
- Encouraging businesses to ensure at least one place on their board is filled by a BAME candidate.
- Maintain funding for people to develop and improve English language skills to enable them to fulfill their potential.
- Challenge discrimination in the criminal justice system by boosting police recruitment from BAME groups and conducting a full review of the causes of the over-representation of BAME individuals in the criminal justice system.
Announcing the mini-manifesto Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg said: "Liberal Democrats believe that no matter who you are, where you come from and whatever your circumstances, you should have the opportunity to fulfil you potential. I am proud that Britain today is an open, tolerant country. Our culture and economy is stronger as a result of the diverse range of people who have chosen to make their home here. By giving everyone the opportunity to get on in life, we can ensure a competitive economy and fair society that draws on everyone’s talents."
"As the mini-manifesto sets out, the Liberal Democrats will ensure that our liberal commitment to equality runs through every policy area." Mr Clegg added.
