Quaker response to the Smith Commission
Tuesday, 2 December 2014

Quakers in Scotland, supported by British Quakers, have responded to the Smith Commission on the future of Scotland's place in the UK. Quakers have a 360 year long history of engagement with national and international affairs, an engagement that is driven by a radical faith in Christianity. The Quaker submission is limited to areas in which Quakers have been and are engaged, and which are immediately relevant to the remit of the Smith Commission.
