The Christian Party has launched its manifesto, entitled Promoting British Values.

The party says it proposes banking reform, led by the Bank of England, to reduce the national debt.

Party leaders say it focuses on issues such as the sanctity of life, traditional marriage and British constitutional law.

The party is fielding nine candidates in the general election.

The manifesto covers 12 policy areas, including banking.

"Although everyone is talking about the deficit, we should be concerned about the nation's debt which has doubled in 10 years," it says.

"In recent years, legislation, government policy and court judgments have contributed to the tearing apart of our society's moral, relational and spiritual fabric, providing a seedbed for a host of problems.

"It is an inevitable consequence of turning our back on God's pattern for society - with huge ramifications."

Jeff Green, leader of the party, said: "We believe that unless we protect our hard-won freedoms - and they were hard won - unless we stand up for this, we see the culture of fear and intimidation continue across our nation and we can't allow that to happen."

The candidates standing in the general election are:

Jeff Green, Cardiff North

Dr Donald Boyd, Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey

John Cormack, Western Isles (Na h-Eileanan an Iar)

Trevor Bendrien, Halifax

Juliana Brimicombe, Surrey Heath

Pastor Gabriel Ukandu, Birmingham Edgbaston

Laurence Williams, Old Bexley and Sidcup

Dominic Stockford, Twickenham

Gabriela Fajardo, Westminster North
