Ruffley to Meet Local Religious Group on Cloning Concerns

Wednesday, 22 January, 2003

David Ruffley MP will be speaking at Great Barton Free Church, Mill Road, Great Barton, at 7.30 p.m. on Friday, 24 January.

The subject of his talk is 'Brave New World: are genetic engineering, stem-cell research and cloning grounds for genuine optimism or general unease?' There will be an opportunity for questions following David's talk.

The event is open to members of the local community. Anyone interested in attending should contact the Church on: 01284 788032.

David said: 'We have a very strong Christian community in Bury St Edmunds, not least in Great Barton. Recent stories about human cloning have concerned most right thinking people and I am going to explain my views on this moral question and how I shall be voting in Parliament. It is one of the most pressing non-party political issues of our time.'
