GS: report of Saturday morning

The official report of the morning’s business is here. Full audio recordings are available there.

The revision stage of the Marriage Measure was completed with no substantive changes to the draft published at GS 1616B.

The BBC has a report on this: Church relaxes rules on marriage.

The Parochial Fees Order was approved with one substantial amendment: the fee payable to the PCC in respect of a service for the burial of cremated remains in a churchyard was increased: from £55 to £74.

The item to consider the report of the Standing Orders Committee was not reached before the lunch break and will probably be taken up on Monday afternoon.

Further report of the afternoon’s business to follow.
