Joint Oireachtas Committee Report on Traveller Ethnicity

Today, April 17th, the Joint Oirechtas Committee on Justice presented their Report on Traveller Ethnicity, which recommends the recognition of Travellers by the Taoiseach or Minister for Justice and Equality by way of a statement in Dáil Éireann. The Report also calls for the Government to notify international bodies about the recognition, and finally suggests that the Government build on these actions to create a dialogue with Traveller representative groups about new legislation or required amendments.

Pavee Point welcomes the Report today and has issued a press release (visible here).
