Women-bishops supporters might send measure back

THERE are growing signs that a procedural motion will be tabled to delay the women-bishops legislation when it goes to the General Synod for final approval next month.

Under Section 94 of the Standing Orders, a motion can be moved from the floor of the Synod to send the draft Measure back to the House of Bishops for further considera­tion. Supporters of women bishops have expressed their reluctance to vote for the Measure since the Bishops added two amendments.
