My Lords, first, I thank the right reverend Prelate for his continuing focus on Christian persecution and his comprehensive Truro report.

A recommendation was made for mandatory training for all FCDO staff on religious diversity and inclusivity. The current training is not mandatory—perhaps the Foreign Secretary could tell us why.
