Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

8Two residentiary canons to be engaged exclusively on cathedral duties

(1)The constitution of each cathedral shall provide that the holders of at least two residentiary canonries in the cathedral shall be engaged exclusively on cathedral duties.

(2)In this section and section 21 below the expression “cathedral duties” means duties (whether in the cathedral or in the diocese) which should, in the opinion of the Chapter after consultation with the bishop, be discharged in or from the cathedral:

  • Provided that the archbishop of the province and the Church Commissioners acting jointly may in special circumstances direct that the holder of a residentiary canonry who is normally engaged exclusively on cathedral duties shall, for such period as they may specify, be treated as so engaged for the purposes of this section notwithstanding that he is performing duties other than cathedral duties.

(3)If any question arises under this Measure whether a person is engaged exclusively on cathedral duties that question shall, after consultation with the Visitor and the Chapter, be determined by the Church Commissioners, and if any person is dissatisfied with the decision of the Church Commissioners he may appeal therefrom to the archbishop of the province whose decision shall be final:

  • Provided that during a vacancy of the see of the bishop who is the Visitor of the cathedral the provisions of this section requiring consultation with the Visitor shall not apply.
