Sir, — Thank you for coverage of the Chennai floods. Considering that Madras and Carlisle are linked dioceses, it has been noticeable that much of the Church of England’s attention has been only on the Carlisle floods.

Recalling also comments after the Paris shootings (Letters, 27 November), is there a pattern emerging where lives in the West are valued more than lives elsewhere?
