Further Public Consultation on the Clergy Discipline Measure 2003

December 4, 2020

At the publication of the Society’s Working Party Interim Report on CDM, I indicated that there would be a further consultation regarding proposals for reform. That further consultation is now available and can be downloaded below.

It comprises a number of specific questions. This is a major project where the input of the Society’s membership would be greatly valued. So even if you are only able to answer some of the questions, please reply. Responses are welcome from clergy, from lawyers, and from laypeople such as churchwardens or PCC members who may have had some experience of the operation of the Clergy Discipline Measure.

The Working Party would also welcome responses from non-members so please feel free to circulate this consultation amongst any relevant contact groups of which you are part.

Response should be sent to cdmconsultation@gmail.com by 20 December 2020.

With the thanks of the Society for your assistance.

Mark Hill QC
Chairman, Ecclesiastical Law Society
