Prologue
The Report of the Committee on Finance and Expense
Your Committee begs to report as follows:
That the General Synod having by Canon created a Board of Finance authorized to deal with the Financial business of the Synod; there would appear to be no necessity for continuing this Committee as a standing Committee of the Synod.
The Committee therefore suggests that to avoid confusion and to save expense all the duties devolving on the Committee on Finance and Expense be transferred to the Board of Finance and this Committee be discontinued; and that in accordance with the foregoing the amendments of the Basis of Constitution and of the Rules of Order of which notice has been given in the Convening Circular, Page 21, Notice of Motion No.8 be adopted.
(Sgd.) William Niagara, Convenor

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.

Memorial from the Brotherhood of St. Andrew
To the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada:
This Dominion Convention assembled in Winnipeg respectfully suggests that:
Whereas at the present time no well defined attempt is made by the Church to link up closely the passing on of Anglican settlers from the Old Land to the West with those points where Anglican associations and privileges are accessible.
It is desirable to operate for the above purpose through our own Council for Social Service and any allied agencies, a Central Bureau in the Church House, Westminster, London, in direct communication with another similar Bureau in Winnipeg.
NOTE - If we are to have happy and satisfied settlers in Canada, there must be better advice and guidance given to the Immigrant whilst still in the Old Land. There is a great need of increased interest and co-operation in the building up of a strong, broad, definite, Colonization policy, that would not only hold Anglicans for the Church; but through proper environment establish them as God fearing, loyal, industrious citizens of our Great Dominion.

Resolved, That the Report be referred to the Executive Committee of the Council for Social Service.
