Comments: General Synod: Questions

Thanks for doing this - very helpful!

Now, I think more attention should be given to the quite brilliant question from Paul Perkin, viz

"The Revd Paul Perkin (Southwark) to ask the Chairman of the Cathedrals and Church Buildings Division:

"Q75 In the light of: (a) recent guidance from the Ecclesiastical Insurance Group that the 2005 Working at Height Regulations apply to church buildings; and (b) media reports late last year that four people and scaffolding were needed to change five light bulbs 40 feet above ground at St Benet’s Roman Catholic Church in Beccles at a cost of £1,300, has the Division made any assessment of:

i) how many Anglicans it would take to change all the light bulbs in similarly lofty locations within Church of England buildings; and

ii) what the total cost of such work would be for Parochial Church Councils across England?"
