Dear Port of Dover Police,
Dear Sir/Madam,
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]
