Prologue
The Reverend Canon Ansley Tucker and the Reverend Paul Robinson members of the General Synod Ministry Committee brought two resolutions (from the Committee) to the House of Bishops about the Advisory Committee on Postulants for Ordination (ACPO). Their purpose was to receive the House of Bishops' input about the resolutions (#3-2-84 re. ACPO contemplated for Canadian Forces personnel and #4-2-84 re. Categories for use by ACPO assessors in relation to prospective postulants) to be taken back to the Ministry Committee, before bringing the resolution to the National Executive Committee for approval. (See appendix ii for resolutions).
Following a discussion in plenary, the consensus of the House of Bishops was that it would ask that the ACPO process continue.

Notes
There was some discussion about the motion before it was put to a vote.
Moved by: Bishop Ingham
Seconded by: Bishop Hutchison
While the House of Bishops, in reissuing and updating the 1979 Guidelines, states its commitment to the principles contained therein, nevertheless the House understands that individual bishops, acting with their diocesan synods, may wish to set these guidelines aside in specific instances and for pastoral reasons, and members of the House agree not to challenge the right of any bishop and/or diocese to do so.

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.
