16 September 2013 Last updated at 14:27 BST

Boris Johnson says stopping women wearing veils could "exacerbate what is already quite a difficult problem."

The Mayor of London was asked to comment on Liberal Democrat MP Jeremy Browne's calls for a debate on banning women wearing veils in public.

Mr Browne says he fears young girls feel pressured into covering up.
