Dr Morgan opposes 'tax'

THE Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, has spoken out against the so-called "bedroom tax", whereby households on housing benefit lose a segment of that income if they are deemed to be "under-occupying". He has given his support to a protest to be held in Cardiff tomorrow: "This tax is depriving those in need of the means to live at the most basic level . . . and is creating insecurity and debt." 

Support for budding stonemasons (pictured, above)

THE insurer Ecclesiastical said last week that it would continue to sponsor the national stone­mason­ry training scheme run by the Cathed­rals' Workshop Fellowship. The first students graduated from the scheme last year. Also last week, Ecclesiastical Investment Management was named best ethical investment provider for the fifth year running, at the Investment Life and Pensions Money­facts Awards.
