The party has received dozens of complaints about the former foreign secretary's comments about women wearing burkas, who he said looked like letter boxes.
Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary in July over Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, was swiftly condemned by former colleagues and fellow lawmakers for his Islamophobic comment. Yet we have representatives of our governing party who think otherwise and who use Muslim women in order to pander to far-right Islamophobes within the party, as Boris Johnson has done.
Senior Conservatives have called on him to apologise for the comments or face losing the party whip.
She further said that a woman is not answerable to anyone if they wish to wear a burqa.
The Conservative party code of practice sets out "minimum standards of behaviour." .
Speaking to the BBC's Asian Network, Dick said that "some people have clearly found it offensive" but added that specialist hate crime officers have deemed that the former two-time Mayor of London "did not commit a criminal offence".
A majority of adults in the United Kingdom do not believe Boris Johnson's comments describing women who wear burkas as looking like "letter boxes" and "bank robbers" are racist, a poll has suggested.
"It may make good journalism, but it doesn't make a good member of parliament or a good minister".
An imam who has previously criticised the burka said Mr Johnson should not "apologise for telling the truth".
Shreen Mahmood, a radio presenter in Birmingham who wears the hijab, said she had suffered verbal abuse and knew of others who had been spat at or had their head coverings pulled.
The complaints will be assessed by an independent panel appointed by the Conservative party Chairman Brandon Lewis and the Chair of the 1992 backbench committee of Conservative MPs.
Supporters say women should be free to dress as they choose and that such divisive debate only increases pressure on them to cover up.
