Ecclesiastical Appointments

Volume 715: debated on Tuesday 15 December 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many candidates the Prime Minister's ecclesiastical adviser considered for the appointment of Bishop of Peterborough before two names were presented to the Prime Minister. [HL522]

Under the new procedures adopted in 2008, the Crown Nominations Commission submitted one name to the Prime Minister with a second name should there be any reason why the first candidate is unable to take up the appointment. The number of names considered by the Crown Nominations Commission is a matter for the Commission itself.
