On 15th November 2017 the Bishop of Leeds, Rt Revd Nick Baines, received a written answer to a question on the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

The Lord Bishop of Leeds: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to mark, in 2018, the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: In 2018, as in previous years, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will organise coordinated activities across its network of overseas posts and in London to commemorate Human Rights Day (10th December), which marks the anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

The Government strongly believes in the values enshrined in the UDHR and its continued relevance in global affairs.
