Government integration expert says she 'wants to see faces' of Muslim police officers and midwives
An expert tasked to probe integration between different communities in Britain has said she would rather Muslim police officers and midwives did not wear a face veil, adding "I want to see their faces".
Dame Louise Casey said she strongly opposed forcing people by law to remove veils, but explained that public bodies needed a "common sense" approach and that people and organisations should be able to debate the issue openly.
As she published a major report today, she went on to argue that political leaders have ignored a series of "inconvenient truths" about integration and specifically about the way women are treated in some segregated Muslim communities.
