No bishops?

The bishops are represented on the CNC by the two archbishops. Other bishops only serve as central members if an archbishop is unavailable (or chooses not to serve) for a particular vacancy.

Given the age profile of the current bench of bishops the CNC will be quite busy over the next few years.Do these elections suggest anything significant. Judith Maltby and Andrew Nunn are both liberal catholics, Aiden H-S a traditionalist anglo-catholic....dont know anything about the others.
