(The Christian Institute) Asking children to attend Christian assemblies undermines their human rights, according to a United Nations committee.

A highly controversial new report by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child expresses ‘concern’ that pupils in the UK are legally required to take part in a daily act of collective worship, which is “wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character”.

Conservative MP David Burrowes described the criticism as “ludicrous” and said the Government can “respectfully put those kind of reports in the bin where they belong.”
