Prologue
This report was presented by the Archbishop of Kootenay. Considerable discussion arose out of the report which was, on motion of the Archbishop of Kootenay, seconded by Mr. R.W. Allin, carried in both Houses.
Your Committee regrets that it cannot submit any report either on the "state" of the Church or on statistical returns. The information supplied is insufficient in both cases. Only nine bishops have replied to a request for a Church report of conditions in their areas; for the year 1944 statistical returns were not received until this year, and the figures of two important dioceses are still unavailable; less than half the returns for 1945 have been received.
Your Committee requests that it be relieved of its duties unless fuller cooperation is forthcoming and needful information supplied. It would however stress the great loss which the Church would suffer, if information as to the ebb and flow of Church life in various parts of the Dominion is not available. It may point out that the proportion of active to missing Anglicans would never have been known if statistics had not been collected and synthesized.
Text
That this Synod requests the Committee on Statistics and State of the Church to continue its labours and calls upon all Dioceses to extend to the Committee the fullest co-operation so that all needful information may be supplied. CARRIED in both Houses.
