From Mr David Clark

Sir, — Congratulations to the 300 senior lawyers who on Monday published a statement describing the Government’s response to the refugee crisis as “deeply inadequate”.

What a pity that the House of Bishops or, better still, church leaders from across all denominations did not issue a similar collective statement weeks ago! Has our Church lost its voice or its nerve?
