Motion text

That this House notes recent court cases in the US where Churches that undertook reasonable restrictions while holding indoor worship services to help safeguard against the threat of covid-19 have been faced with more stringent demands, some being fined repeatedly as they remain open; and expresses the hope that across the democratic world, reasonable approaches and regulations can be taken which protect worshippers and their families, but do not extend to depriving them from the freedom to worship indoors.
