Movers Appleby, R.F.

That this General Synod noting that increasing numbers of women are being consecrated Bishops in other churches of the Anglican Communion and, recognising the possibility of future implications of this development for this Church, requests the Doctrine Commission and the Canon Law Commission to examine the theological, unity and constitutional issues concerning the consecration of women to the Episcopate, so far as the Anglican Church of Australia is concerned and, to report to the next Ordinary Session of General Synod.
