Tins General Election always raises the difficult case for Christians of the candidate or member seeking election whose record towards Christian principles has been outstanding but whose party stands for a policy, with which we personally do not agree. convictions with strong coctions do not like to vote against their party and yet Christians with strong convictions would like to support a candidate whose record has been so good. At least we could take the opportunity given during the campaigning to thank a member who has been faithful to Christian principles in the past. Catholic members in general serve us well. Many non-Catholic members have shown great courage in defending Christian principles and some have given much time and effort to getting justice for our schools. To mention only two whose sympathy is well known to me, Mr. Proctor, Labour member for Eccles. and Mr. Ian Harvey, Conservative member for Harrow East. It would be a shame if we were willing to grouse but never thought of expressing gratitude.
