"This paper was originally thought of simply as a report of inter-Anglican financial affairs. A number of colleagues then felt that more was needed, that some general statistical account of the Anglican Communion would be helpful in our consultations in Canada [at the 1963 Anglican Congress]. A questionnaire was duly circulated, somewhat hastily; it met with only half-hearted response, I'm afraid; and the results are fragmentary indeed. They are reproduced in part, however, although they will not be profoundly useful. Then in a third section, some thoughts are introduced dealing with the complicated problems of a just system of apportionment. .... The first section deals with reports of our actual inter-Anglican operations. These pages are mainly for the record. The third section raises the question 'What is the fair basis for apportioning costs among the churches of the Anglican Communion ?' The whole paper is intended to be a convenience in discussion and nothing more". -- Intro.

"The Council for Social Service has had the privilege from time to time of publishing the Reports of studies made concerning issues which are related to the Council's work. The Report of a Special General Synod Committee on Narcotic Addiction is one such. The Bishop of Ottawa [the Rt. Rev. Ernest S. Reed], as Chairman of the Committee gathered together a group of specialists who, over a period of years, gave careful consideration to this problem. Once again the Church has performed a service for the whole community. The Report of the Committee was received most favourably at the Annual Meeting of the Executive Council of General Synod meeting at Hamilton, in September 1960. The resolutions arising out of this Report form a part of this Bulletin. Executive Council requested The Council for Social Service to publish the Report in full `for information and future study'. This Bulletin is the result." -- Intro.
