STATE FUNDING FOR FAITH AND SECULAR ORGANISATIONS

That this House notes that the Government has announced a £50,000 fund for a prize to uncover and reward the best examples of faith projects and a £1 million fund which national representative faith bodies can bid for to support them in developing their capacity to engage with Government and to play their part in delivering public services; further notes that a majority of the population in the UK neither practices nor adheres to any religion; and therefore calls upon the Government to fund secular groups for similar purposes to at least a matching level, or withdraw taxpayer funding for these projects altogether.
