Naz Shah responds to reports of Islamophobic comments from serving Conservative minister
Naz Shah MP, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Minister, commenting on reports a former Conservative Party MEP has experienced Islamophobic comments from a serving minister, said:
“Whoever this is, they are not fit to serve as an MP, let alone as a government minister.
“Boris Johnson must act, find out who it is and sack them.”
