§ Mr. Greenway
asked the Member answering for the Church Commissioners, pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Ealing, North on 1 November, Official Report, c. 318, if he will publish in the Official Report details of the activities of the Church Commissioners in relation to pastoral reorganisation during the past 12 months.
§ Sir William van Straubenzee
Details of the activities of the Church Commissioners in relation to pastoral reorganisation are published in their annual report and accounts. The latest published information is given in their report for the year to 31 December 1982, which was laid before Parliament on 29 June 1983. I am sending a copy of this Report to my hon. Friend.
For 1983, by 31 October, some 250 new sets of proposals for pastoral reorganisation had been submitted by dioceses to the commissioners.
