Motion text

That this House notes the valuable work and support provided to students by Christian Unions on university and college campuses across the United Kingdom; further notes the constructive dialogue that exists between the majority of Christian Union Societies and Student Guilds or associations on campuses across the country; believes a tolerant society should respect the rights of Christian Unions to their beliefs; believes that Christian Unions are entitled to the rights of freedom of expression, freedom of belief and freedom of association; and further believes that the leadership of Christian Unions should not have imposed upon them people who do not share their core beliefs.
