CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic bishops of England and Wales have encouraged their people to put “the common good before self-interest” in forthcoming national elections.

After Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced a general election to be held July 4, the bishops’ conference released a statement calling for a government that “will help the poor, the marginalized, and the vulnerable.”

The bishops’ statement proposed changes in the criminal-justice system, welfare and housing policies, and policies regarding migration and carbon emissions. They also urged members of the new Parliament to oppose euthanasia.
