Prologue
Bishop Nock reminded the house of the General Secretary's letter to all the Bishops in which the following two questions were asked:
(a) Would the Bishops support a revision of the Declaration of Principles of General Synod to make clear that General Synod has authority to enact legislation regarding licensing?
The Bishops agreed that they would support this revision, and that the revised wording be referred to the Provincial Synods.
(b) Should the legislation provide for the disciplining of laity as well as clergy ?
Text
That this House is of the opinion that the proposed Canon XVIII should be entitled "Ecclesiastical Discipline" and should be in three parts:
(a) The first paragraph of Canon XXII or similar statement.
(b) Ecclesiastical discipline respecting the clergy as in proposed Canon XVIII.
(c) Ecclesiastical discipline respecting the laity following somewhat similar lines to those in "B." CARRIED 9-2-82
