Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Answered on

7 February 2019

This review was commissioned by the Foreign Secretary and will map levels of persecution of Christians in key countries around the world. It will also provide an objective assessment of the impact and levels of Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) support and make recommendations in this regard. The Review was commissioned by the Foreign Secretary into the work of the FCO, so it would be inappropriate to make findings and/or recommendations to other departments. Other public authorities may wish to take note of the points of learning. The Review will be presented to the Foreign Secretary.
