The attached Bills were lodged with the Honorary Secretaries of the General Synod before 23rd March 2022.
A 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. More information is available in the bills pamphlet.
