The Foreign and Commonwealth Office attaches great importance to this independent global review into the persecution of Christians, which was launched on 30 January. The Terms of Reference for the review are currently being agreed with the independent reviewer. They will be published once finalised. We will ensure that the Bishop of Truro is well supported and has the resources needed to conduct the review.
