Justin Welby – 2021 Statement on the Murder of David Amess

The statement made by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, on 15 October 2021.

Sir David Amess dedicated his life to championing causes he believed in, serving constituents and his country for almost forty years as a Member of Parliament. He was a devout Roman Catholic whose deep faith fuelled his sense of justice. We are richer for his life, and we are all the poorer for his untimely death.
