Brady welcomes publication of Traveller report
Mickey Brady MP welcomed publication today of the Traveller Movement’s report “Policing by consent: Understanding and improving relations between Gypsies, Roma, Irish Travellers and the police."
The report highlights failings by the police in Britain to meet public sector equality duties towards the Gypsy and Traveller population.
Mr Brady said,
“The Irish Traveller Community is a valued part of the Irish diaspora in Britain. Some of the findings of this report are of deep concern.
“There is no excuse for and there should be no tolerance of discrimination and prejudice. I commend The Traveller Movement for producing this report.”
