Ruth Kelly broke with decades of Labour support for multiculturalism as she admitted the Government’s failure to impose a single British identity could have led to communities living in ‘isolation’.

The Communities Secretary became the first Cabinet minister to question the idea that different faiths and races should not be forced to integrate but should be allowed to maintain their own culture.

In an extraordinary volte face, she appeared to concede that Government policies had contributed to communities drifting into segregation.

‘In our attempt to avoid imposing a single British identity and culture, have we ended up with some communities living in isolation of each other, with no common bonds between them?’ she said.
