Dear West Yorkshire Police,
I wish to make a freedom of information request to your force. My question is as follows:
The Home Office requires police forces to record and report details regarding the self identified ethnicity of members of the public that forces come into contact with. With regards to this, does your force, in addition to its requirement under the 16+1 system of ethnic classification, collect data on Gypsies and Irish Travellers?
I would greatly appreciate it if you could send your reply to us via email; Anthony Howarth, The Traveller Movement. [email address]

Yours faithfully,

Dear West Yorkshire Police,
Could I draw your attention to the fact that your force has not replied to my Freedom of Information Request regarding the monitoring and collection of ethnic data on Gypsies and Irish Travellers. As such, by law your force has to respond within a prescribed time limit, a one that is rapidly expiring.

Yours faithfully,

Anthony Howarth
