The Australian Christian Lobby has welcomed the Federal Government’s move to ensure the future of chaplaincy following the Williams’ High Court decision last week.

ACL Managing Director Jim Wallace said the Government was making good on its promise to secure chaplaincy funding by introducing legislation in the parliament today.

“This is a welcome development and will put to bed any uncertainty that may have arisen out of the Williams case,” Mr Wallace said.
