Motion text

That this House notes the report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission which highlights the overzealous approach of some employers to ensuring there is no sign of Christianity in work places, including the discrete wearing of crosses; expresses concern that this approach is tantamount to the persecution of Christians which is intolerable; and underlines the fact that in a Christian country employees must not fear losing their job due to wearing a symbol of their faith.
