(b)divide the number so apportioned to each province (less two in the case of the province of Canterbury) among the dioceses of that province (other than the diocese in Europe) so that the number of members to be elected by the several dioceses (other than the said diocese which shall elect two members) are as nearly as possible proportionate to the total number of names certified for them under the next following paragraph, but so that no diocese, other than the said diocese and the diocese of Sodor and Man, shall elect less than three members.

4(1)After paragraph (1) of rule 36 (appeals) there shall be inserted—U.K.

(2)After paragraph (3) of that rule there shall be inserted—

(3A)An error in the electoral roll of a chaplaincy in the diocese of Europe shall not be a ground of appeal against the result of an election to the House of Laity of the Genenral Synod by the diocesan electors of that diocese unless—

(a)either it has been determined under the rule which applies in that diocese and corresponds with this rule that there has been such an error or the question is awaiting determination under that rule; and

(b)the error would or might be material to the result of that election;

and the allowance or disallowance of a vote shall not be a ground of appeal against the result of such an election unless the allowance or disallowance would or might be material to the result of the election.
