EDM number 1017 in 2004-05, proposed by Kevin McNamara on 04/04/2005.

That this House welcomes the 35th World Roma day on 8th April and sends greetings to seven million Roma, Gypsies and Travellers throughout Europe and the many others around the world whose forebears have struggled against centuries of exclusion and discrimination; celebrates the benefits of a rich and diverse cultural heritage; notes the proud record of public service of Roma, Gypsies and Travellers carrying out community work, working in schools and hospitals, working in or with the police and serving in the Army services; and urges the Government to seek the broad support required domestically and throughout Europe to promote social inclusion and ensure that Roma, Gypsies and Travellers may be treated as equal members of society and encouraged to play a full and active role as citizens.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
