The Bishop of Manchester has asked me to thank you for your e-mail and to reply on his behalf.
The Legislative Drafting Group has met a number of times since the Synod debate in July and is confident of being able to complete its work in December. The draft Measure, amending canon and code of practice will be available for the General Synod to debate in February, and to commit to a Revision Committee.
The Group has from the very outset of its work adopted the discipline of not commenting publicly on its discussions. I can, however, confirm that the Group is working within the mandate that the Synod gave it both on substance and process.
With all good wishes
