Prolocutor
Prologue
The Prolocutor read the following Ruling, re Admission of Women to the Lower House.
Text
The language of the Constitution rendering it necessary to determine whether male or female persons, or both, are intended:
1. It is certain that only men were in contemplation when the law was made:
2. It is equally certain that women would not have been included had the point arisen:
3. It is a principle of legal interpretation that in questions of doubtful terminology, regard should be had to the intention of those making the law:
The Chair therefore rules that until the General Synod positively enact otherwise, women are not entitled to membership in the Lower House.

Prologue
Dean Neales presented the Report of the Committee on Credentials.
To the Prolocutor and Members of the Lower House of the General Synod:
Your committee, having examined the credentials submitted to us beg to report as follows:
1. No information has been furnished us as to the number of delegates to which each Diocese is entitled and we are therefore unable to certify as to the correctness of the aggregate number entitled to sit in the Synod.
2. Assuming the correctness of the returns in this respect we find that the credentials are all in order, with the exception of the Diocese of Caledonia, a woman Miss Inez Smith, having been elected as one of their lay representatives. We would ask for a ruling of the Synod on this point.
We hereby append a statement of the number elected from each diocese, totalling 124 clerical and 123 lay delegates. This list excludes Miss Inez Smith.
In the Diocese of Rupert's Land, Major J.W. Hawker is certified by the Archbishop of Rupert's Land as a substitute for Dr. H.M. Speechley, and by the Secretary of that Diocese as a substitute for Mr. William Pearson.
We recommend that in future the return made by each Diocese should certify the number of licensed clergymen in the same.
All of which is respectfully submitted, (Signed) Scovil Neales, Convener.
