SCOTLAND Yard wants to downgrade the importance of written English tests at police recruitment centres to make it easier for candidates from ethnic minorities to join the Met.
Bosses believe people who do not have English as their first language are being discriminated against under current assessment rules.
They have recommended the weighting placed on the Written Communication section of the Metropolitan Polices tough entrance exam is lowered.
However, they fear a white backlash among rank and file officers who feel they have already been passed over for promotion.
Home Affairs Committee chairman, MP Keith Vaz, said last night any move to drop standards would be insulting to ethnic minority candidates themselves, and would risk losing public cofidence.
The details are contained in an internal Met report marked restricted but which has been obtained by the Sunday Express under the Freedom of Information Act.
The Diversity Health Check document highlights a growing concern about race relations at the Yard, 11 years after the publication of the Macpherson Report into allegations of institutionalised racism surrounding the death of Stephen Lawrence in 1998.
The diversity report paints a picture of an agonised management acutely aware their workforce is not representative of the wider London community but at the same time concerned not to damage the moral of existing staff.
However, Met managers are determined to press ahead on filling the diversity gap.
The report, written by the Diversity and Citizen Focus Directorate in June last yearand still being discussed with Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howerecommends the Yard lobby for a law change that would allow positive discrimination in recruitment.

Diversity: finding the lowest common denominator to set the under-achievement bar.
Diversity is ‘WAY over-rated.
it is this “down grading” business that is rendering organizations as impotent, IMO.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Cultural Marxists like to label anti-white programs as “civil rights” or “positive discrimination” because who wants to speak out against civil rights or something allegedly positive?
It’s basically wrapping a tird in fancy paper and giving it to white people so that they think they’ll like what’s inside.
Funny how you ALWAYS have to lower the standards for minorities. What does that tell you?
We did that in 2008 for the presidency. It hasn’t worked out too well for us.
It tells me what we all know, but few are brave enough to say.
“ts basically wrapping a tird in fancy paper and giving it to white people so that they think theyll like whats inside.”
sort of like Obama...?./s
What could go wrong?
These days anti-racism means anti-white. Meaning the white person (male usually) gets screwed and gets passed over to hire a less competent minority or female or gay
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a tird by the clean end.
Happens here too
Starts loosening standards to let women
