Tabled 28 January 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House welcomes the Catholic Church’s focus on Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities for Racial Justice Sunday on 9 February 2020; recognises the valuable contribution that Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities make to the Church and to wider society; notes with concern that over three-quarters of people from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities have experienced hate speech or hate crimes; further notes that Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities experience the worst health, education and employment outcomes of any ethnic group; and calls on the Government to take urgent action to address the discrimination and inequalities these communities face.
