Scottish minister Humza Yousaf claims nursery discriminated against daughter

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Scottish minister Humza Yousaf claims nursery discriminated against daughter” – below is their description.

The Scottish Health Secretary Humza Yousaf has made a complaint against a nursery near Dundee, alleging that it refused to offer his daughter a place on the grounds of her mother’s Muslim name.  

Mr Yousaf and his wife then helped co-ordinate five further enquiries using Muslim and “white sounding” names, and they allege that the nursery discriminated against the Muslim applicants.

The owners of the nursery said they were “extremely proud of being open and inclusive to all”, adding that the claim was demonstrably false and refuted “in the strongest possible terms”.
