The Police Crime Sentencing and Courts Act 2022 is now law and anyone intending to reside in a vehicle can face 3 months in prison , a £2500 fine and have their vehicle destroyed .It’s aimed at Gypsies and Travellers of all descriptions but also includes motorhomers , campervanners , circus types , festivallers ,showmen , truckers and anyone else
The Act has been passed by the House of Lords despite immense opposition from activist groups, lawyers, academics, Gypsy and Travellers groups, politicians, police and many media commentators across the country.
Law Friends has produced a free, informative video through a collaboration between Travellers, lawyers and academics.
Marc Willers QC of Garden Court Chambers London is the leading Queens Counsel Barrister in laws affecting Gypsies and Travellers in the UK. Rhiannon Craft aka Rhi Bissio is an academic (PhD Sociology at Cardiff University) and co-founder of Bristol Vehicles for Change.
In this legal analysis, Rhiannon Craft asks 10 key questions that are answered by Marc Willers QC in order to outline the very serious impact the Police, Crime, Courts and Sentencing Act will now have on all travelling people.
This is essential viewing for all legal practitioners, Travellers of every description, and other stakeholders and supporters.
Facilitated by Law Friends Society.
