Party Chairman Baroness Warsi has spoken out about the importance of faith to life in Britain.

She outlined how, unlike under the last Labour government, the coalition will support faith groups and welcome their potential to build the Big Society.

Sayeeda said: "Under the coalition's plans, faith groups will have more power, more responsibility, and more choice over how to get involved in their communities and over how to apply their skills."

And she added, "Above all we want to encourage a bonfire of the petty rules and prejudices that have held them and others back for so long. For me faith groups are at the heart of society already and key to its future."
