That Rule of Order 23(a) be suspended in relation to Resolution A185.
Point of Order
The Rev. James Robinson raised a point of order. He submitted that this motion was out of order because the proposed action was required to be taken by enactment of a Canon. The Assessors advised that the point raised was not a point of order, although it may be a question as to the validity of the enactment, if passed. A two-thirds majority was required. The Primate ruled that the point raised was not a point of order.
The resolution was then put and CARRIED Act 38
