IRR News 1-7 February 2013

Written by: admin

Dear IRR News subscriber,

This week, we have two articles on Gypsy and Traveller issues, one reporting on an inquiry in Scotland into the reality of Gypsy/Traveller lives and the other examines proposals to change the law in relation to the schooling of Traveller children.

And in news from across the UK, a man who was accused of the murder of Simon Tang in Carrickfergus in June 1996 has had the charges against him dropped.

Romanian ministers have hit back at plans by the British government to restrict the rights of Romanian and Bulgarian migrants; Warwick University has dropped plans to monitor the physical locations of 100 non-EU staff. And four children have been saved from certain death after being discovered in the back of a refrigerated lorry in France which was headed to the UK.

You can also download a copy of our digest of new reports and publications here (word doc, 52kb).
