Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

3Power of bishop to give directions

(1)Where it appears to a bishop that an administrative body may have committed or be intending to commit an act in contravention of section 2 of the 1990 Measure and he is satisfied, having regard to the urgency of the matter, that there is insufficient time to comply with section 1 above he may from time to time give such interim directions with respect to the matter in question as he thinks fit to the administrative body before complying with that section.

(2)Where a bishop has ordered a special visitation he may from time to time give such directions with respect to the matter in question as he thinks fit to the administrative body concerned.

(3)Without prejudice to the generality of the powers to give directions under this section, such directions may require the administrative body—

(a)to take such steps as the bishop may consider necessary for the purpose of avoiding a contravention of section 2 of the 1990 Measure;

(b)to refrain from taking such steps as the bishop may consider likely to lead to such a contravention;

(c)to take such steps as the bishop may consider necessary for the purpose of restoring the position so far as possible to that which existed before the act was committed.

(4)Before a bishop gives directions under this section which include a requirement of the kind mentioned in subsection (3)(c) above he shall seek the advice of the Cathedrals Fabric Commission.

(5)Directions given by a bishop under this section shall be in writing unless he is satisfied, having regard to the urgency of the matter, that there is insufficient time for them to be committed to writing; but if they are given orally he shall as soon as practicable commit them to writing.

(6)It shall be the duty of an administrative body to which directions are given under this section to comply with them.
