English bishops welcome government’s acceptance of help for persecuted Christians

Foreign Minister Sir Alan Duncan said he is aware of the change that is needed, and hopes with this report and with the acceptance by the government, positive change will come.

The Bishop of Truro said: “I am of course very pleased to hear that the Government has decided to accept all of the recommendations in full, and delighted that Sir Alan has formally recognized the need for a response across the rest of Government.”

The Bishop of Southwark also commented: “I am delighted that Alan Duncan has announced that the Government has accepted in full the recommendations of the Bishop of Truro’s report into Foreign Office support for persecuted Christians.”

The goal is the same for all: to protect those who are vulnerable to persecution because of their faith.
