United Kingdom: MacGillivray (UK Bishops’ Conference), “best wishes to Johnson. The coming months will be extremely challenging”

“We welcome the new prime minister in his role and we wish him all the best”, Stephanie MacGillivray, from the Department for Social Justice of the Bishops’ Conference of England, told SIR news agency. “The coming months will be extremely challenging”, said Ms MacGillivray on behalf of the Bishops’ Conference, and “we look forward to working with the government in areas we have been working in for a long time, particularly schools, the prison reform and assistance to the marginalized and to vulnerable persons”. These are actually some of the topics that the newly elected Boris Johnson has touched on in his speech yesterday in which he set out the political priorities of his term in office for the next few months as head of the new government.
