Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Measure into force:

[F138](1)Subject to any division of a diocese under this rule every diocese shall be an electoral area for the purposes of elections to the House of Laity.E

(2)So far as is consistent with any rule made under the Standing Orders of the General Synod under [F2rule 39(8)][F3and subject to paragraph (3) of this rule] a diocesan synod may, for the purposes of any election, divide a diocese into two or more areas, and apportion the number of members of the House of Laity to be elected for the diocese among such areas, and the election shall be conducted in each area as if such area were a separate diocese. Where a diocese is so divided, a diocesan elector who is a representative of the laity shall vote in the area to which the body by which he was elected belongs, and a diocesan elector who is not a representative of the laity shall vote in such area as the diocesan synod may decide. Any such division shall remain in force until it is revoked by the diocesan synod.

[F4(3)If a diocesan synod decides to divide the diocese into two or more areas in pursuance of this rule the division shall be made in such manner that the number of members to be elected in any such area will be not less than three.]
