star this property answer text <p>In order to comply with the Forestry Stewardship Council, UK Woodland Assurance Scheme and UK Forestry Standards, forests must contain a maximum of 75% primary species. Latest figures for forests in Scotland managed by the Church Commissioners show that they contain around 65% Sitka spruce, though that percentage was higher when the forests were first planted in the 1960s and 1970s. The remainder comprises native broadleaves and other conifer species such as Scots pine, Norway spruce, Douglas fir and open ground. Open ground makes up approximatley 19% of the area under management and mostly comprises native grasses, water (ponds, streams and rivers), heather and rock outcrops. The Church Commissioners will achieve at least 5% native broadleaves by the end of the first rotation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Within the Diocese of Blackburn seven churches and churchyards, the diocesan retreat house at Whalley Abbey and three Church of England primary schools were damaged by floodwater. Many have also found that the boilers and heating systems have been damaged beyond repair and extensive programmes of works will need to be undertaken to both dry the buildings out and restore or replace furniture, carpets and school materials.</p><p>Reports of damage are still being registered across the Dioceses of Blackburn, Carlisle, Manchester, West Yorkshire and the Dales and York. To date 129 church properties have registered substantial damage from the December storms with our insurers, though I expect that figure to rise. The Cathedral and Church Buildings Council of the Church of England will be working with the dioceses to develop robust disaster management and recovery plans and flood adaptation measures for churches and other buildings.</p><p><strong>Within the Blackburn Diocese</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Parish Name / building</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Grade or * listing / Status</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Type of damage</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Michael’s on Wyre</p></td><td><p>Grade 1</p></td><td><p>Water damage and damage to the boiler</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Michael's, Much Hoole</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Water damage and damage to the boiler</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Mary the Virgin, Eccleston</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Michael &amp; All Angels, Croston</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Severe water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St John the Evangelist, Lancaster (Incare of Churches Conservation Trust)</p></td><td><p>Grade 2*</p></td><td><p>Severe water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St John the Baptist, Tunstall</p></td><td><p>Grade 1</p></td><td><p>Damage to the boiler</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St Wilfrid's, Ribchester</p></td><td><p>Grade 1</p></td><td><p>Damage to the graveyard and loss of many burials and monuments</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Whalley Abbey</p></td><td><p>Grade 1 and Scheduled Ancient Monument</p></td><td><p>Major water damage to the Abbey building</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Kirkland &amp; Catterall St. Helen's CofE School <br></p></td><td><p>Primary School</p></td><td><p>Severe water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>St. Michael's on Wyre C of E School</p></td><td><p>Primary School</p></td><td><p>Major water damage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Whalley CofE School</p></td><td><p>Primary School</p></td><td><p>Basement flooded and water damage</p></td></tr></tbody></table>

star this property question text To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, whether the settlement the Church Commissioners made to the complainant against George Bell was made directly in relation to allegations against Bell, or on the basis that a complaint made under a subsequent Bishop, was not handled in a way which would be expected today. more like this

star this property answer text <p>A formal claim for compensation was submitted in April 2014 and was settled in the autumn of 2015. The settlement followed a thorough pre-litigation process during which investigations took place.</p><p>Following the settlement of the claim the Bishop of Chichester, the Rt Revd Martin Warner issued a formal apology. The statement can be read on the Church of England’s website at the following address: <a href="https://www.churchofengland.org/media-centre/news/2015/10/statement-on-the-rt-revd-george-bell-%281883-1958%29.aspx" target="_blank">https://www.churchofengland.org/media-centre/news/2015/10/statement-on-the-rt-revd-george-bell-%281883-1958%29.aspx</a></p><p>The statement from Bishop Warner went on to say that “the response from the Diocese of Chichester in 1995, when the survivor first came forward, fell a long way short, not just of what is expected now, but of what we now appreciate you should have had a right to expect then.&quot;</p> more like this
