Travellers: Hate Crime
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report by Goldsmiths, University of London, Recognise, Report, Resolve, published in June, about racist hate speech and other abusive incidents targeted at the Gypsy, Traveller and Roma communities.
Answered on: 18 July 2018

The Government is clear that all forms of hate crime and discrimination are unacceptable. We support efforts to improve hate crime reporting, and in December 2017 we awarded a grant of £55,000 to Herts GATE (Gypsy and Traveller Empowerment), an organisation that works to encourage reporting of hate crime in Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities and has set up Report Racism GRT, a third-party hate crime reporting website.

The report Recognise Report Resolve draws on material submitted to the Report Racism GRT website, and has been produced independently by Herts GATE and Goldsmiths, University of London.
