Margot Parker MEP, the UKIP Equalities spokesman hit out at comments made by the Prime Minister at Prime Minister's Question today about the wearing of the veil.

"I was amazed by the outrageous comments of Theresa May at PMQs today. She should know that women wearing a veil or a burkha is an impediment to integration. It is a symbol of the subjugation of women and at times a direct threat to the security of ordinary people. Quite contrary to Theresa May's idea it is not enough that a burkha is only removed in court or at border security. People want to see the face of the person they are speaking to. 

"The very least that our political class should be doing is to discourage the wearing of the veil in public places."
