Motion text

That this House recognises the importance of Holy Week and Easter Sunday to the thousands of Christians living in the UK and beyond; welcomes the fact that Christians in the UK are able freely to observe their faith; notes however, with concern, that many Christians across the world face persecution as a result of their Christian faith and believes that this is unacceptable; and calls on the Government to work with others to ensure that all Christians, no matter where they live, can observe their faith without fear or intimidation.
