Abolish Chancel Repair Liability
Eradicate the need of Chancel Repair Liability Insurance, and the potential to be called upon and forced to pay money towards the repair of a Church simply because you live within a certain area. Payment towards such things should be a choice, not a legal necessity.
This ‘medieval anomaly’ is outdated and offensive. The fact that there is any possibility of being forced to pay any amount of money towards a Church, particularly one to which you do not belong to, is archaic and counterproductive towards the accepting and equal society that we should be striving for. Although insurance for this is cheap, as such an event is ‘uncommon’, the mere fact that this is a possibility should be rescinded. All religions, and lack thereof, should be treated equally.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
