To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they have taken since May 2012 to implement the measures in the European Union National Roma Integration Strategy which were assessed by the European Commission as not having been met to a minimum standard.

European Union Member States adopted Council Conclusions on Roma integration in May 2011, in which they made commitments to advance the integration of Roma (including Gypsies and Travellers) either through national strategies or through wider social inclusion policies.

Her Majesty's Government is advancing Roma integration through wider social inclusion policies, including through the Ministerial Working Group on Tackling Inequalities Experienced by Gypsies and Travellers. The Working Group published a report in April 2012 which includes 28 commitments to help mainstream services support Gypsies and Travellers. The report also outlined that the Government intends to produce a further report once we have had the opportunity to fully assess progress in delivering those commitments.
