One in three people would support a ban on Muslim women wearing veils which cover their faces in public places, according to a new survey.
The ICM survey, carried out for the BBC, asked if people would approve the introduction by the Government of such a plan.
Thirty-three per cent of respondents said they would approve the introduction of such a ban, while 56 per cent said they would not and just under one in 10 said they did not know.
Asked if they would support prohibition in specific circumstances, 61 per cent said they would approve a ban in airports and at passport control, 53 per cent in courtrooms and 53 per cent in schools.
Forty-one per cent said they would support a workplace ban, but 56 per cent said they would oppose a ban on Muslim women wearing veils while travelling on public transport. [Link]
