Currently all maintained schools must provide daily collective worship for all registered pupils.  In the small print: "Daily collective worship must be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character".

Both of these, and indeed all statory rules on compulsory provision of relgious matter should be withdrawn.

Why is this idea important?

Britain is a secular country.  It is not a religious state. 

A secular government must not legislate in bias of religion.  It should definately not make statutory the education and support of religion or anyone particular religion.

This is not just an offense of civil liberties but on basic human rights.
