That this Synod requests the Standing Committee to consider the appointment of a committee to examine the Constitution of the Anglican Church of Australia as to whether the existing provisions of the Constitution are adequate to meet the concerns of certain members of this Church arising out of the defeat or passing of legislation authorising the ordination of women. And to consider questions such as unity and limits to diversity envisaged by and provided for in the Constitution and the role of the Appellate Tribunal in determining the meaning of the Fundamental Declarations and Ruling Principles of the Constitution.

(Bishop E.D. Cameron, 26.8.87)
