Church of England Measures

A Measure of the Church of England is legislation given Final Approval by the General Synod (or before 1970, the Church Assembly) on which a resolution to present for Royal Assent has been passed in both Houses of Parliament and to which the Royal Assent has been signified. A list of such Measures which have received the Royal Assent since 1920, which are of general (rather than local) application and which are not repealed is provided here, along with information on obtaining copies.
