JPR News Release
JPR submits evidence to the Parliamentary Select Committee on Science & Technology about the potential termination of the national Census
Thursday 12 Jan 2012
JPR has submitted written evidence, in conjunction with the Board of Deputies of British Jews, to the Parliamentary Select Committee on Science and Technology, assessing the potential impact of the termination of the national Census on the planning and provision capability of Britain’s Jewish community. The submission concludes that the potential discontinuation of the national census is of major concern to JPR and the Board of Deputies and that a viable alternative to the Census must include the collection of data on religion if the Jewish community is not to be put at a significant disadvantage in its data gathering capacity.
