Parliamentary Questions on impact of school re-opening on BAME communities

How is the Government monitoring whether their policies about school re-openings is disproportionately impacting BAME communities?

In an answer to one of my Parliamentary Questions, about the Government’s assessment regarding how their schools policy will affect BAME people, the Government say they are, as required, taking this to in to account (see image of WPQ 61817).

Yet in response to my other questions about what proportion of staff and children who have stayed in schools and who have re-attended since 1st June respectively, are from BAME backgrounds, the answer is “the information requested is not held centrally” (see image of WPQs 61819, 61820, 61821).

Does this make sense to anyone else?
