synod question about ACC finances

Mr Michael Chamberlain to reply as Chairman of the Finance Committee
Dr Susan Cooper (London) to ask the Chairman of the Finance Committee:
Q52 What are the financial implications for the Church of England of the Episcopal Church (USA) and the Anglican Church of Canada voluntarily withdrawing from the meetings and committees of the Anglican Consultative Council for the period up to the next Lambeth Conference?

Financial implications would arise for the Church of England only if the Anglican Consultative Council were to approach us for an increase in our contribution. We have received no such approach. The budget which the Synod will be asked to approve on Monday incorporates a 3% increase in our contribution on 2006, the same as the increase between 2004 and 2005.

It should be noted that while the Anglican Church of Canada did accede to the request of the Primates to "voluntarily withdraw" from the ACC until 2008, at no time has the Anglican Church of Canada threatened in any way to withdraw its funding of ACC.

In fact the Anglican Church of Canada has continued to express its full support of the ACC as the only body in the Communion that provides input from Presbyters, Deacons and Laity.
