Church Commissioners Written Answers: Clergy Discipline

On 10th January 2022, Andrew Selous MP, representing the Church Commissioners, gave the following written answer to questions from an MP:

Rachael Maskell MP (Lab): To ask the Member for South West Bedfordshire, representing the Church Commissioners

  • whether the Ecclesiastical Committee has been kept informed of the progress of the review of the Clergy Discipline Measure.
  • when a presentation of proposals to reform the Clergy Discipline Measure will be made available to members of the Ecclesiastical Committee.

Andrew Selous: The Ecclesiastical Committee have not, as yet, been formally apprised of the recommendations made either by the Lambeth Working Group or the Implementation Group. The Implementation Group would be very happy to present their proposals to the Ecclesiastical Committee as part of the ongoing work over reforming clergy discipline. The Group envisage being in a position to do this from May 2022.
