Government directives have been issued and grant money made available for this very purpose, and still there have been no positive undertakings made by councils throughout the UK.
This coming June is Romany and Traveller month, and the main topic will be the unwillingness of councils to face up to their obligations. There is talk of demonstrations taking place in the UK and Europe to emphasize the urgency of the situation.
