31Diocesan registrar: deputy

(2)A person appointed as deputy under subsection (1) has the same powers and duties as the registrar; but, in the case of an appointment for a specified purpose, the reference to having those powers and duties is a reference to having them for that purpose only.

(3)Where the registrar of a diocese ceases to hold that office, a person appointed as deputy under subsection (1) ceases to hold that office when a new registrar is appointed.

(4)Subsection (5) applies if—

(a)in the opinion of the bishop of the diocese, the registrar of the diocese is for any reason unable or unwilling to exercise the duties of registrar or it would be inappropriate for him or her to exercise them, and

(b)there is no person appointed as deputy under subsection (1) able to perform those duties.

(5)The bishop may request the registrar of the province in which the diocese is situated to appoint a fit and proper person to perform the duties for such period as is specified in the instrument of appointment.

(6)A person appointed under subsection (5) has the same powers and duties as the registrar of the diocese.

(7)In a case where the registrar of a diocese is also the registrar of the province within which the diocese is situated, subsection (5) has effect as if the reference to the registrar of that province were a reference to the registrar of the other province.
