House of Commons
Persecution of Christians
EDM #55
Tabled 23 October 2019
2019 Session
That this House notes the 2019 report of Aid to the Church in Need entitled Persecuted and Forgotten? which shows that the Christian population of Iraq has declined by 90 per cent within a generation from 1.5 million before 2003 to less than 150,000 today; recognises that any Daesh resurgence in Syria or Iraq could pose an existential threat to Christians in the region; and calls on the Government in line with its commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Bishop of Truro's review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office support for persecuted Christians to take urgent and immediate steps to safeguard the presence of Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria.
