PM backs right to wear cross at work

The Prime Minister has pledged to change the law to ensure that Christians can wear crosses at work. Speaking during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons on Wednesday afternoon, David Cameron said that he fully supported the right of people to wear religious symbols at work. He described it as “a vital religious freedom”.

He was responding to a question from the Conservative MP for Haltemprice and Howden, David Davis, who wanted to know why the Government was resisting a European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) appeal from the former British Airways worker Nadia Eweida, who was told that wearing a cross conflicted with British Airways’s uniform policy.
