Prologue
Bishop Collings requested guidance from the House on a particular point in the Rupert's Land "Handbook for Bishops" which states in section II that "...the bishop-elect must be a priest of not less than five years' standing, and...". Bishop Collings explained that there was someone in his diocese who has been ordained for less than five years, who he thought would make a good candidate, and who would be of support to the House. There was discussion about whether or not an exception could be made. It was agreed that it would be the Metropolitan who would be the one to determine whether or not an exception could be made.
Moved by: Bishop Collings
Seconded by: Bishop Allan
That this House put the word "normally" in section II to read: "The bishop-elect should normally be a priest of not less than five years' standing, and..."
There was further discussion and it was thought by some that "...and must be at least 30 years of age" should be added to the motion.
Moved by: Bishop Finlay
Seconded by: Bishop Asbil
That the motion be tabled until morning. CARRIED
Archbishop Jones said he believed that there was a need to have a number of candidates for the position of bishop. Canonically, the provincial canons govern the province, while the guidelines assist in the direction.
The next morning the following motion was put on the floor.
Text
That the bishop-elect should normally be a priest of not less than five years' standing and must be at least 30 years of age; of good character, piety, learning; with a zeal for souls, prudence; sound in health of body and mind. CARRIED

(iii) Report on Deceased Members.
The Bishop of Nova Scotia reported, with deep regret, the passing on January 25th, 1960, of the Right Reverend William Charles White, retired Bishop of Honan, China, and the first Bishop of that Diocese. Consecrated in November 30th, 1909 in St. James' Cathedral, Toronto, Bishop White gave his life to the work of the Church overseas. Due to his zeal and perseverance, the way was opened for the consecration of a Chinese priest to succeed him and thereby an indigenous episcopate for the Chung Hwa Sheng Kung Hui was established.

Prologue
The Bishop of Ontario presented the revision of "Guidelines" which had been presented to the House at Augusta, 1968, but which had not been dealt with at that time. This revision of the Guidelines was printed as Appendix D to the Minutes of the 1968 Augusta meeting.
The Archbishop of Algoma also presented a report on behalf of a Committee appointed by the Primate to bring Lambeth Resolutions 40 and 41 before the House. This report was brought in while the House considered "Guidelines on Bishops" because its content was pertinent.
The report was as follows:
Resolution 40
In concurring with Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) the Committee appointed by the Primate, consisting of the Bishop of Moosonee, the Bishop of James' Bay and the Archbishop of Algoma, recommend that the Canadian House of Bishops adopt Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) and that the same be incorporated in the Minutes of this meeting.
For the implementation of this motion, the Committee would refer to Appendix D, Section VIII, Cl. (2) on page 31, 1968 Minutes -- (Guidelines for the use of Bishops) and further that Cl. (5) Section (e) be changed to make obligatory the appointment of an Assistant Bishop as ex officio member of the Executive.
Resolution 40: "The Conference affirms its opinion that all co-adjutor, suffragan, and full-time assistant bishops should exercise every kind of episcopal function and have their place as Bishops in the councils of the Church."
Resolution 41
The Committee recommend to the House of Bishops, the adoption of Resolution 41.
Resolution 41: "The Conference recommends that the bishops as leaders and representatives of a servant Church, should radically examine the honours paid to them in the course of divine worship, in titles and customary address, and in style of living, while having the necessary facilities for the efficient carry on of their work."
In its implementation, the Committee would suggest the dropping of diocesan signatures and meaningless titles, such as "My Lord".
