Really excellent that Sir Philip Mawer is to be the first Independent Reviewer under the regulations supporting the House of Bishops’ Declaration re women in the episcopate. God help any diocesan bishop, male or female, playing fast and loose with any parish!

John U.K. – The error is in the link on the CofE webpage; I’ll let the folk at Church House know. Meanwhile, if you are in a hurry to read GS1921Z it is included in the zip file containing all the synod papers.

The link to GS 1921Z has now been corrected above and on the CofE website.
