Anglican synod in London votes: a setback for women bishops
CWN - October 14, 2011
Anglicans of the London diocese voted against a proposal for the acceptance of women as bishops.
While both bishops and lay representatives at the London synod voted for the proposals, a bare majority of clerics voted against it.
The proposal will now be brought up before a General Synod of the Church of England. If approved by a two-thirds majority, it will then be brought before Parliament.
