Letter to the Clerk of the Committee from
the Church of England
Owing to the timetabling of its meetings the
Church of England Board for Social Responsibility has not had
an opportunity to consider a submission to your Committee's Inquiry.
However I have circulated to my Board members a draft copy of
the Methodist Church's evidence and it is clear that the points
made by the Methodists would receive strong support from many
Anglicans. My Board next meets on 18 June and if the direction
of your Committee's thinking is known by then I shall be happy
to report the position to the Board. In the meantime we shall
await the publication of your Committee's report with great interest.
We shall also look closely at the detail of the legislation once
the Government brings it forward.
