The following were Diane James’ responses to Christian Action UKIP’s Leadership Questionnaire:

 

Q1. Do you support current legislation which stipulates the requirement of two doctors to sign off an abortion?
I prefer to detail my position below
Please detail your response to Q1 here:
2 doctors should be unnecessary. 1 medical opinion should be sufficient.
Q2. Do you agree that gender selection abortion should be made illegal?
Yes
Q3. Do you agree that Sharia law has no place at all in the United Kingdom, and that the principle of “One Law for All” is paramount to give the same legal protection to all?
Yes
Q4. If elected leader, will you fight to preserve the rights of parents to smack their children within the context of ‘reasonable chastisement’?
Yes
Q5. Do you support there being no change to current Sunday trading laws?
Yes
Q6. Will you affirm the benefits of strong committed family life for the nurture of our children? As the state cannot measure, register or provide the basic human requirement of parental love, will you reject all state interference in parenting and in particular will you reject outright the Scottish Named Person scheme as a totalitarian abuse of parental rights?
Yes
Q7. Will you reaffirm UKIP’s 2015 manifesto pledge to stop sex education in primary schools?
Yes
Q8. Will you fight for the rights of Christians who adopt children to teach them Christian beliefs, with no proviso equally to teach adopted children about other religions?
Yes
Q9. In view of the number of 11-16 year old children accessing pornography and adult sexual content online* will you take steps to prevent this?
Yes
Q10. When he was UKIP leader, Nigel Farage said “we need a much more muscular defence of our Christian heritage” and that UKIP believes that “Christianity should be recognised by Government at all levels”. Will you reaffirm these statements?
Yes
Q11. When he was UKIP deputy leader, Paul Nuttall said that “UKIP is the only party that will confidently protect the rights of Christians in the UK”. Will you reaffirm UKIP’s 2015 manifesto commitment to “extend the legal concept of ‘reasonable accommodation’ to give protection in law to those expressing a religious conscience in the workplace on same-sex marriage” as well as other issues of conscience?
Yes
Q12. During the 2015 GE, UKIP uniquely produced a 2 page Christian manifesto. Not only did this connect UKIP to the 59% who identify as Christians, but also the large number of BME voters who are Christians. Will you reaffirm the Christian Manifesto?
Yes
