[F1(A1)This section applies only in the case of a person who is holding office otherwise than under Common Tenure.]

the archbishop or bishop, as the case may be, may from time to time authorise the continuance in that office of that person after that date for such period or further period, not exceeding one year in all, as he may specify [F2except that a diocesan bishop may exercise his powers under this subsection in relation to a suffragan bishop only after consultation with the archbishop of the province].

should continue in that office after the date on which he would otherwise retire in accordance with section 1 of this Measure, the bishop may, with the consent of the parochial church council of the parish, or, as the case may be, of each of the parishes, belonging to the benefice, from time to time authorise the continuance in that office of that person after that date for such period or further period, not exceeding two years in all, as he may specify.
