Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport Memoranda


Letter to the Clerk of the Committee from the Church of England

  Owing to the timetabling of its meetings the Church of England Board for Social Responsibility has not had an opportunity to consider a submission to your Committee's Inquiry. However I have circulated to my Board members a draft copy of the Methodist Church's evidence and it is clear that the points made by the Methodists would receive strong support from many Anglicans. My Board next meets on 18 June and if the direction of your Committee's thinking is known by then I shall be happy to report the position to the Board. In the meantime we shall await the publication of your Committee's report with great interest. We shall also look closely at the detail of the legislation once the Government brings it forward.
