I REFER TO the Vatican City news report, "Number of priests rises slightly" (CN, Mar 5). It gave data on church population, priests and seminarians for 2004. The statistics given for Asia and Africa are encouraging.

In order that we can better relate with the general statistics provided for Asia it would be good if the relevant authorities could give breakdown figures for the Archdiocese of Singapore and all the dioceses of Malaysia including Brunei.
