Response to Ecclesiastical Law Society report on CDM

25/02/2021

Bishop at Lambeth, Tim Thornton, chair of the Church of England’s CDM working party, said:

"As chair of the Clergy Discipline Review Group I welcome the report published by the working group of the ELS.  It has been very good to work with them and especially good to have two of their group on our group. As I have made clear publicly I am committed to finding a replacement for the CDM and I am clear that many of the ideas and detailed work in the ELS report is enormously helpful to us and all who will consider what a replacement Measure will look like. I am especially grateful to Peter Collier for the immense amount of time and effort he has put in to chairing the group and bringing this Report to publication.”
