CORNISH NATIONAL MINORITY REPORT 2

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

• Within the spirit of the Framework
Convention, implicit through its Articles, the
Cornish constitute a national minority.

• Th e Cornish, like the Scottish and the Welsh,
possess an historic national identity and
national origins.

• Th ere are barriers to the Cornish being able to
maintain and celebrate their distinct identity.

• In attempting to overcome these barriers the
Cornish have encountered a legal conundrum
whereby they can only bring a case under
the Equalities Act if they are a recognised
‘racial group’, but case law will only identify
Cornish people as a ‘racial group’ once the
Cornish successfully prosecute a case of racial
discrimination.

• Th e UK Government has relied on the ‘racial
group’ criterion to defi ne national minorities.
Th e ‘racial group’ criterion is viewed by various
organisations as too narrow and unrefl ective of
the purposes of the Framework Convention.

• National minority status will legitimise the
Cornish in the eyes of statutory bodies and
decision-makers. It will ensure that the
Cornish are not impeded from maintaining
and celebrating their distinct identity.

• National minority status will confer upon the
Cornish the dignity of visibility. It will deliver
tangible social, cultural and economic benefi ts
for the Cornish and the United Kingdom.

• National minority status will enable the
Cornish to play a full and active part in British
society, contributing to the diversity of the
United Kingdom.

• National minority status for the Cornish
will bring coherence to UK Government
policy. It will address the current anomaly
whereby Cornish national and ethnic identity
is offi cially recognised for the purposes of the
Census, but the Cornish people have yet to be
recognised as a national minority.
