General election 2019: Javid dismisses Tory Islamophobia claims

Chancellor Sajid Javid has defended his party’s handling of Islamophobia, saying they have a “zero tolerance policy” and that the prime minister would “never ever” tolerate it.

Speaking to the Today programme, Mr Javid dismissed claims made by former Conservative party co-chair Baroness Warsi that the party had been slow to act on Islamophobia among its councillors and MPs.
