Women in the episcopate consultation

David Pocklington has published two articles at Law & Religion UK about the Consultation document on women bishops legislation.

Women in the episcopate consultation: the basics
Women in the episcopate consultation: an analysis

The second includes this comment.

The above analysis suggests that whilst the four propositions developed by the Working Group provide a broad framework within which to proceed, these need to be finessed further to maximize the benefit of the progress achieved to date. This would include.

  • more formal declaration of the objectives a) to provide a clearer focus for the group’s work, and b) to give a signal to those outside the group of the expected outcome;
  • minimization of “soft law” instruments within the “package” which is developed, which would rely [on] a combination of primary and secondary legislation coming into force at the same time;
  • a statement on the expected time-scale, identifying key milestones and reviews of progress.

But do read all of them both.
