Moved in amendment to the amendment by the Rev. F.G. Ongley, seconded by Canon L.F. Wilmot - That this House approve the principle that the stipends of missionary Bishops be set at not less than $4,000.00 per annum and that of missionary Clergy at $2,000.00 per annum, exclusive of residence and travelling expenses, and respectfully asks the House of Bishops to take this matter under consideration that with the Executive of the M.S.C.C. and the Budget Committee discussions may be entered into with all those Dioceses affected to try to work out ways and means by which this principle may be put into effect with due consideration of differentiation between married and single Clergy.
