Brett Whiteley backs Jacqui Lambie's call to ban burqas
by Doug Dingwall
Braddon MP Brett Whiteley has echoed Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie's call for burqas to be banned, saying they were a "symbol of oppression".
However Labor Franklin MP Julie Collins said his comments could be inflammatory.
Mr Whiteley said the burqa "may also pose a security threat" as he took a public stance different from Prime Minister Tony Abbott's and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull's.
