JPIT writes to Boris Johnson

An open letter has been sent to the new UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, from 7 Church leaders, to express concern that ‘failing to agree a deal on Brexit will “hit those held back by poverty very hard indeed”’.

As well as the argument about a general ability to cope with a no-deal Brexit and its particular effects on those hit by poverty, specific concerns are raised about food supply, pricing, the availability of medical supplies and the supply of energy.

The letter is signed by leaders from the Methodist Church in Great Britain; the United Reformed Church; the Baptist Unions of Great Britain, Scotland, and Wales; The Church of Scotland; Quakers in Britain; the Scottish Episcopal Church.

Together these Churches have approximately 700,000 members.
