This Synod

(i) draws the attention of the Standing Committee to such clauses as 5 © and (d) of Rule II; and having regard
for the infrequency of the Synod’s meeting;

(ii) requests the Committee to take all such opportunities for leadership of this Church between sessions of
Synod as Rule II permits; and

(iii) invites the Standing Committee to submit such amendments to Rule II as will enable it to function more
flexibly and effectively as the representative body of this Church between sessions of Synod.

(The Bishop of Canberra and Goulburn, 26.5.73)
