Prologue
Moved by: Bishop Burton

"That in light of the Primates' Statement of October 16, 2003, we ask all parties involved in, or seeking, extra-territorial Episcopal oversight to stand down, and that legal proceedings against the bishop and clergy involved be stayed, for an initial period of three months to allow for the ministry of adequate alternative episcopal oversight to be put in place at the initiative of the Archbishop of Canterbury on behalf of the Primates."

- to consult through the Primate `with the Archbishop of Canterbury on behalf of the Primates',
- and to report to the April 2004 meeting of the House of Bishops." (Note: see p. 24, when motion was put to a vote.)

Notes
Archbishop Clarke requested that copies of the original version of Archbishop Hutchison's and Archbishop Finlay's motion, as well as the version which the House had carried be appended to the minutes ([Appendix] i). He also asked that the Agenda Committee give some consideration to a different model for the House of Bishops' meetings when there was an issue of particular importance to be dealt with. He commented that often when discussing an important matter, the bishops were rushed at meetings because the item was either not given adequate time on the agenda or was scheduled too late during the meeting. Bishop Morgan responded saying that the Agenda Committee would be happy to consider Archbishop Clarke's recommendation.
Bishop Wallace requested that the full motion (moved by Archbishop Hutchison and seconded by Archbishop Finlay) be faxed to the members of the House of Bishops.

Archbishop Clarke requested that both versions of a motion put before the House of Bishops by Archbishop Hutchison and Archbishop Finlay be appended to the minutes.

Notes
The Primate suggested that a thorough review of the primacy is needed; one that would include consultation with other primates around the communion and with Archbishop Michael Peers and himself; and also a thorough discussion with CoGS about what the church is looking for in a Primate. This work, he said, would take years.
