Comments: General Synod - Outline Agenda for July

>>is now online here and is copied below.

Online in the loosest sense of the term at any rate. When will the CofE website learn that lobbbing some scruffy RTF file at a website isn't a good way of doing things.

Thanks to Peter for actually converting it into a bit of native web language for us to read easily.

Interested to see a private members resolution about the married couples' tax allowance. Of course, legally it would now have to cover civil partnerships too. Can't see the moral conservatives liking that one!

Yes, since when has it been within the competence of GS to make resolutions about taxation ? However, whether tax allowances are extended to CPs is not a particular concern to me. In fact I think there's a lot of merit in the arguement - but not just for same-sex partnerships, but for all sorts of inter-dependent non-married relationships that were neglected by the CP legislation.
