Letter: Established fiction

The Independent Online
Sir: Having been brought up in New Zealand, where there never has been an established church, and serving as I do at present in the Church of Wales, which was disestablished in 1920, I find it very strange that David Streater of the Church Society should believe that disestablishment of the Church of England would lead to 'increasing lawlessness at every level' (letter, 26 January).

I can find no evidence for any more lawlessness in either New Zealand or Wales, or in any other country where the Anglican communion is present, than there is today in 'established' England.

Yours sincerely,

BENEDICT BAKER
