PM must hold inquiry into Islamophobia in Tory party

Responding to reports that the Muslim Council of Britain  has called for an Islamophobia inquiry in the Conservative party, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “Islamophobia is a scourge in our society, and over recent years both incidents of Islamophobia and hate crimes in general have got worse. Yet instead of showing leadership on the issue the PM has stayed silent.

Acting Leader Ed Davey

“During the leadership contest Boris Johnson said that the Conservatives would undertake an independent inquiry into Islamophobia. He’s gone very quiet on the idea as PM.

“The Conservatives must have a full independent inquiry into Islamophobia and ensure it is rooted out of their party and the country.”
