Kate Green OBE MP (Labour) has called for an inquiry into the overrepresentation of Gypsy, Traveller and Roma (GTR) children in the youth justice system, after a report was released highlighting that one in ten children in secure training centres - and seven per cent of boys in young offender institutions - are from GTR backgrounds. She also raised concerns about the fact that numbers of GTR children in youth custody are not officially recorded. You can read more about this issue here.
