Complaints raised about Islamophobia in the Conservative Party

Published: 12 May 2020

An Equality and Human Rights Commission spokesperson said:

“We have given very careful consideration to complaints raised about discrimination and Islamophobia in the Conservative Party. We have concluded, in the light of the decision by the Party to institute an independent investigation, that it would not be proportionate to initiate our own investigation at this stage. We will be monitoring the review and requiring the party to provide regular updates on progress. If we are not satisfied with progress or how the investigation is conducted we will review our decision and do not rule out the use of our legal powers.”
