While Blair converts to Catholicism, only eight Ministers say they believe in God

Fewer than half of the Labour Cabinet admit to believing in God, an exclusive Mail on Sunday survey reveals today. Just eight out of 22 Ministers are prepared to say they are Christians, while two admit to being atheists.

The believers include Gordon Brown, son of a Presbyterian preacher, who has often spoken of how his church upbringing gave him a “moral compass”.

The Mail on Sunday also asked David Cameron and his Shadow Cabinet whether they believed in God. The Conservatives emerged as a more devout group, with 20 of the 30 frontbenchers professing to have faith.

Michael Gove, the Schools spokesman, said: “I was brought up in the Church of Scotland and I attend an Anglican church. I am a believer in mainstream Christianity.”
