The following Bills were lodged with the Honorary Secretaries of the General Synod before 21st October 2020.
Bill is a proposal for legislation which, if passed, will become a
Statute, binding on all members of the Church of Ireland. The procedure
is designed to ensure that the proposed legislation is considered
carefully, both in principle and in detail, and that there is a day’s
interval for reflection before final approval is given.
