Should EU take legal action over Roma expulsion?
The European Commission has told France that it faces legal action over its expulsion of Roma (Gypsy) migrants if it fails to adopt EU rules on freedom of movement by 15 October. Do you agree with this decision?
More than 1,000 people have been deported to Romania and Bulgaria since late July and the expulsions have led to a serious row between Brussels and Paris.
European Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding says France has not respected a 2004 EU directive on freedom of movement. President Sarkozy claims that the illegal Roma camps threaten to become shanty towns.
Should the EU take disciplinary action against France? Are there better ways to tackle the issue?
