During the recent local election campaign, Jeremy Corbin visited the Kenton Derasar along with Gareth. Gareth re-iterated his call for Jains to have their own tick box on the census claiming:
“It is vital that the census contains correct information concerning the make up of the UK.
The Government and other bodies allocate resources in line with the information gathered by the census.
Jains have specific dietary requirements, are prone to certain medical conditions and have specific chaplaincy needs.
Therefore, having a specific tick box for Jains is vital for the fair allocation of resources for their community.”
