    That this House condemns the derogatory comments of the right hon. Member for Sheffield, Brightside and Hillsborough about Roma immigrants; agrees that describing their presence in the UK as likely to lead to an explosion is widely inaccurate and could well lead to stigmatisation, prejudice and Romaphobia; understands that these migrants have been driven to the UK through poverty and prejudice; believes that they should be welcomed; and notes that repeated studies have shown that immigrants contribute more to the UK economy than they take out.
