§ Q17. Mr. Driberg
asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the concern expressed by senior incumbents in the Diocese of London at the method by which the new Bishop of London was appointed, he will consider divesting himself and his successors of the responsibility of recommending such appointments.
§ The Prime Minister
No. I should be prepared to consider proposals on this subject only if I were formally requested to do so by the proper authorities of the Church.
