HAS there been any effort made by HDC to find suitable accommodation for the travelling community (The Hunts Post, April 15)? All we seem to hear is injunctions being placed on our people who are merely seeking the human right of a place to live and educate their families without any outside financial help.

There have been three High Court Injunctions served in as many weeks: surely they must realize there is an urgent need to accommodate these families.

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.
