High volume correspondence
From time to time the number of emails and letters received on a particular subject becomes so great that it is simply not possible for each one to be acknowledged individually. Even when we cannot reply to each email or letter, each one is nonetheless read and the points made noted.
At the current time we are receiving a very large number of emails and letters expressing views on all sides of the debate around same-sex marriage. Although we would always prefer to reply to each message individually, we regret that we will not be able to reply to letters and emails on this subject for the time being, so that we can use our available resources to ensure each one is read and the points made are taken into account.
