Prologue
There was further discussion to that of the November 1992 House of Bishops meeting about an ad hoc group of the Pension Committee (page 7 of those minutes) and how it was to take place. Bishop Morgan responded by saying that he understood from Mrs. Mason, Director of Pensions, that funding for the group was limited. Bishop Townshend added that the purpose of the ad hoc committee, as he understood it, was purely for fact finding and that the committee had not been put together yet.
Text
That the House request the Pension Committee to appoint at least one of its episcopal members to the task force. And that the House asks the episcopal representative to bring back matters of concern to the House. CARRIED
