This is a pure curiousity question – Does anyone know how many Bishops failed to show for the last Lambeth? Or the previous one? I ask since we hear endlessly about the 220 or so Bishops who did not come this year- but,surely, there is never 100% attendance – so the question relates to the marginal difference and not the absolute number quoted in the press

I think this question is on the wrong thread, but the exact same question was asked yesterday in the earlier briefing at Canterbury for the press, about which I am to blog shortly.
We were promised answers to it today.
Let’s save further comments on this topic for the correct thread…
