Comments: Canon Glyn Webster to become Bishop of Beverley

Will his elevation means his resignation from the CNC?

Canon Webster will cease to be eligible to be a House of Clergy rep on the CNC when he becomes a bishop. His consecration is scheduled for 25 January 2013*. He will therefore continue to take part in the choice of the next Archbishop of Canterbury; the final CNC meeting for this is scheduled for the end of September.

He withdrew from the recent elections for the CNC and it is the new members who will consider vacancies after Canterbury.

Is this appointment purely at the discretion of the Archbishop of York? And if so, is this discretion absolute or is he required to follow the guidelines issued to the House of Bishops by its legal advisors?
