QEII: settlement

In mid-January, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre and Christian Concern(CC) reached a settlement following the cancellation of CC’s conference on marriage at the Westminster conference centre in May 2012.

Christian Concern

The event, exploring biblical marriage, was cancelled by the QEII Centre the night before it was due to take place. Concerns over compatibility with the Centre’s diversity policy were cited. The Centre accepted that some people have deeply held views about the nature of marriage, and that every individual has the freedom to express these in accordance with the law.
