CORNWALL Council has "apologised unreservedly" after issuing a housing benefit and council tax benefit form across Cornwall which used a single tick box for people to identify as Cornish, Gypsy or traveller. In one section it invites applicants to indicate their ethnic identity with single boxes for White British and other nationalities. However the final tick box is for "Gypsy/Traveller/Cornish". Cornwall councillor Alex Folkes (Lib Dem) wrote on his blog: "It's offensive to Cornish people and offensive to gypsies and travellers." In a statement Cornwall Council said: "We apologise unreservedly for any offence this may have caused. We accept that the wording on this form is wrong."
