Concern was expressed that there is no Provincial representation working with the Task Force.
That the National Executive Council recommends that a further consultation of representatives from the Provinces, Organization Committee and Long Range Planning Committee be held to consider this report before the presentation to a General Synod. CARRIED
It should be stated to General Synod that all four Provincial Synods were in common agreement that there should be a three-year Synod.
There was considerable discussion and a number of questions were asked. The Primate reported that Lambeth '78 would be considering the whole role of synodical government out of which would probably come guidelines and directions for future consideration.
This report will now be distributed to the Provinces, Diocesan Bishops and future members of the Task Force, along with the action taken by the Council.
