The proposal for co-ordinate jurisdiction proposed by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York has been narrowly defeated. The vote was taken by houses. The House of Bishops voted 25 in favour and 15 against the proposals, the House of Laity voted 106 in favour and 86 against, but the proposals were thrown out by the House of Clery which voted 85 in favour and 90 against.
The Revision Committe urged Synod to vote down the Archbishops' proposals and there followed a series of impassioned speeches both for and against. There was a motion as to whether Synod was ready to decide before voting commenced.
Jonathon Baker, an Anglo Catholic, then asked for an adjournment until Monday to allow time to think, pray and for people to consider their options, especially as Synod had voted against their Archbishops. This was voted on, and it was decided to continue.
