[30 APR 99] COVENTRY CATHEDRAL PRESS RELEASE
Bishop of Coventry to Lead Second Delegation to Iraq

Following the success of Canon Andrew White’s visit in March, the Bishop of Coventry will be leading a second delegation to Iraq, again at the personal invitation of Deputy Prime Minister, Tariq Aziz.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has sanctioned this official delegation, and is sending a representative from the Board of Social Responsibility.

Again, the visit will be humanitarian, and Roland Taylor from the Flying Hospital will be amongst the visitors. One of Canon White’s achievements on his last visit was to secure permission for the Flying Hospital to land in Iraq and to work with the medical professionals there.

Bishop Colin and Canon Andrew White will also be joined by Bishop Clive Handford, the Bishop of Cyprus and the Gulf, who has been unable to reach this part of his diocese for many years. The Bishop of Kingston-upon-Thames will also be part of the delegation.

As before, Canon White is aware of the risks that they are taking, but after the channels of communication were opened by his previous visit, feels this will further help the disastrous situation faced by the ordinary people of Iraq.

The delegation will be going to Iraq, via Amman, on 3 May, and will return on 10 May.
