David Cameron has vowed to consider calls to create a new offence designed to make it easier to remove travellers camped illegally on private land.
The Prime Minister told MPs there should be "one law that everybody obeys" and this is the same for the traveller community as well.
He was responding in the Commons to Tory MP Sajid Javid, who said he wanted to see a new offence of intentional trespass which would allow police to arrest anyone refusing to move when asked to do so.
Mr Cameron said it came down to the issue of "fairness", and told the traveller community they had to conform to planning laws just as everyone else does.
At Prime Minister's Questions, Mr Javid said: "This past summer, constituents in my constituency of Bromsgrove have had to endure travellers trespassing on their land, vandalising it and causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.
"Will you consider bringing forward new legislation that will create a new offence of intentional trespass so that people who go on to land without the owner's permission can be prosecuted without the need for a court order?"
Mr Cameron replied: "We will certainly look at this issue and I think the basic point here is an issue of fairness.
"If everyone else in the country has to obey planning laws, that should be the same for the traveller community as well.
"We should have one law that everybody obeys. That is what we will aim for and we will look at the proposal that you make."
