RESOLVED that

 

This Council is concerned by the reported rise in hate crime across the country following the EU referendum.

 

The Council therefore re-affirms its commitment to an inclusive, tolerant and diverse county. We welcome the many contributions made to our vibrant multicultural and multiracial community by people regardless of their background. We will continue to work to tackle hate crime and discrimination in all its forms.

 

This Council also calls on the Government to act quickly to clarify the right to remain for EU Citizens living in Gloucestershire.
