Prologue
Chancellor David Jones, Chair, presented the report. He advised that, for many years, a number of provisions contained in the Declaration of Principles have been duplicated in the Constitution. The GWG presented four resolutions to General Synod 2010 to deal with this situation—one amended the Declaration of Principles, two amended the Constitution, and one amended the Rules of Order. The amendment to the Declaration of Principles must be approved at two sessions of General Synod.
