Podcast: Can Catholics still vote Conservative?

Jacob Rees-Mogg MP and Deputy Editor of the Catholic Herald, Ed West, discuss what the Conservative Party still has to offer Catholics

Associate Editor of the Catholic Herald, Madeleine Teahan, met with Catholic MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Ed West, Deputy Editor of the Catholic Herald to discuss this question.
