Church of England Measures

18.42As noted above, Church of England Measures are treated for procedural purposes like delegated legislation. Motions for an Address requesting that the Measure be made in the form in which it has been laid before Parliament are traditionally moved by the Second Church Estates Commissioner, a backbench Member; however, they are debated in government time, motions relating to them are tabled on the remaining orders, and debates on them are announced in a business statement (see para 19.18 ). Most Measures are referred for debate in a Delegated Legislation Committee.
