NHS workers should be allowed to wear cross

14th March 2012

Cabinet minister Eric Pickles has supported demands for Christians to be allowed to wear crosses at work.

Speaking at Local Government Questions in the Commons as two NHS workers take their case to Strasbourg, he said: “It’s certainly my view that providing any object doesn’t get in the way of doing the job, that a discreet display of someone’s religion is something we should welcome.” David Cameron’s official spokesman later said the prime minister agreed with Mr Pickles on the issue.
