All forms of hate crime are completely unacceptable, which is why this Government has funded projects to tackle racially motivated hatred, including that targeted at Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities. This includes funding to GATE Herts for an assessment published in 2020 of hate crimes directed against Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
