  7. Bishop says headscarf ban 'raises vital questions about freedom of expression'

    Shahid Hussain

    BBC Local Live, Leeds

    The Bishop of Leeds says a European Court of Justice ruling that a workplace headscarf ban can be legal shows that more work needs "to be done in relation to religious literacy". 

    The Right Reverend Nicholas Baines says this "raises vital questions about freedom of expression". 

    The court says bans on the wearing of "any political, philosophical or religious sign" need not constitute direct discrimination, but they must be based on internal company rules requiring all employees to "dress neutrally".
