Commenting on the burkini in France and reports as to how it is being enforced Meral Hussein-Ece, the Liberal Democrats' Equalities spokesperson said:

"Dictating how women dress is illiberal and reprehensible. Why would anyone think that banning burkinis and then actively forcing women to remove clothing helps fight a war on terror?

"I would wonder where the freedom of speech and expression is that the French have historically prided themselves on."
