UKIP want school girls from “at risk groups” to face an invasive medical check for signs of genital mutilation at least once a year – and every time they return from a trip abroad.
The policy forms part of the “integration agenda” launched by UKIP leader Paul Nuttall today. The document states the party’s ambition to:
“Implement school-based medical checks on girls from groups at high risk of suffering FGM. These should take place annually and whenever they return from trips overseas.”
