1Where a Parochial Fees Order is inconsistent with a private, local or personal Act which affects a parish, the parochial church council or, if there is no parochial church council, the incumbent or minister may apply to the Church Commissioners requesting them to prepare an order providing for the amendment or repeal of that Act in order to permit the Parochial Fees Order to apply to the parish; and, on receiving such an application, the Church Commissioners may prepare a draft order accordingly.E

2Where the Church Commissioners prepare a draft order under paragraph 1 above, they shall—E

(a)send a copy of that order to the bishop of the diocese in which the parish is situated, the parochial church council (if any) and the incumbent or minister of the parish, and any person whose power of fixing fees or whose right to receive fees is affected by the order, together with a notice that consideration will be given to any representations sent in writing to them before such date (which shall not be less than one month from the date of the sending of the notice) as may be specified in the notice; and

(b)cause a copy of the order to be posted for a period of not less than one month on or near the principal door of the church of the parish, or at least one of such churches if there be more than one, together with a notice that consideration will be given to any representations sent in writing to them before such date (which shall not be less than one month from the date when the copy of the order was first posted), as may be specified in the notice; and

(c)publish an advertisement in at least one local newspaper circulating in the parish stating the purport of the draft order and at what place in the parish it may be inspected (which may be on or near the church door mentioned in sub-paragraph (b) above or such other place as the Church Commissioners may decide) and that consideration will be given to any representations sent in writing to them before such date (which shall not be less than one month from the date when the advertisement was published) as may be specified in the advertisement.
