Well Done Wales

Many thanks to my good friend Cathy Owens for mentioning me in her Amnesty International Blog this week concerning asylum seekers and health care.

It's great to be at a major European Church Conference which is so focused on migration issues during the week that the Welsh Assembly Government announced that failed asylum seekers in Wales, who have been told they cannot stay in Britain, can now have access to free NHS care.

A change in regulations was confirmed by the Assembly Government in June, and came in to force last Wednesday.

Well done Wales for being one of the pioneering countries of Europe. I'll make sure that Christians in Lyon hear the news.
