Protect places of worship

Last updated 3 weeks ago

We will [...] protect places of worship.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.20

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to ensure places of worship are safe and secure spaces for those who wish to use them.
  • From 15 March to 28 June 2020, the government held a consultation on protecting places of worship, looking at the scale of the challenge, the requirements of various groups, and ways to improve security.
  • The consultation feedback is currently being analysed, so for now this policy remains ‘in progress’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
