The Motion, as amended, was put and carried as follows:
That this House of Bishops, while grateful for the work and the modifications which the Human Rights Unit has taken, found difficulty with the statement, for various reasons, of the Human Rights Principles for the Anglican Church of Canada and does not commend it to the National Executive Council; and
That this House of Bishops establish its own task force to examine the document entitled "Human Rights Principles for the Anglican Church of Canada" and bring recommendations to the next meeting of this House of Bishops; and
That National Executive Council be asked to withhold this item from its agenda until the House of Bishops has had time to deal with its task force report. CARRIED

Prologue
Bishop Fricker referred to the Notice of Motion from the February 1988 meeting of the House of Bishops and mentioned the Boston International Anglican Consultation which indicated there is an increase in the number of children receiving communion before confirmation, irrespective of age in the majority of cases. The House had asked for an opportunity to have the issue clarified and discussed. Bishop Ferris felt that, in some cases, children and parents were coming forward for communion with very little training and that removal of age limits may cause difficulties. Discussion followed.
The Primate read an excerpt from the 1973 minutes of the House of Bishops, with reference to these guidelines, drawing attention to the #5 - "No child should be admitted to communion under the age of five."
Text
That any reference to a specific age limit be removed from the guidelines. CARRIED
