David Cameron would support a ban on Muslim veils at his children's school
by Peter Dominiczak
David Cameron would support a ban on Muslim veils at a school attended by one of his children, Downing Street has said, as a prominent bishop called for religious face coverings to be outlawed in the classroom.
The Prime Minister's official spokesman said that Mr Cameron supports the right of schools to set their own uniform policies following a row over a Birmingham college's decision to ban veils.
Birmingham Metropolitan College was accused of discriminating against Muslims when they ordered all students, staff and visitors to remove any face coverings so individuals are "easily identifiable at all times".
