Seek to protect those persecuted for their faith

We will seek to protect those persecuted for their faith...

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.53

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to attempt to prevent harm or injury to people targeted by others because of their faith.
  • Since the election, the government claims to have acted on more than half of the 22 recommendations from the independent Truro Review into support for persecuted Christians, and has joined the International Religious Freedom Alliance established by the US government.
  • Support for freedom of religious belief is a wide-reaching and never-ending objective, but there is evidence that the government is making continued efforts in this area, so this policy is ‘done’.

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.
