The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has set out his support for Britain’s continuing membership of the European Union. Voters in the UK will vote in a referendum on 23 June to decide whether the country will leave or remain in the 28-member political and trading union. Opinion polls show the nation is evenly divided on the issue and Archbishop Welby says that there is no official Christian or church line on which way to vote. “Voting is a matter for each person’s conscience,” he said.
