This Measure amends the law so as to make it easier for those who
have certain types of clearly defined connections with a parish to
marry there even though they are not parishioners. It does this
principally by extending to them the parishioner's legal right to
marry in the parish church. The qualifying connections are that:
the person concerned was baptised or prepared for confirmation in
the parish; the person concerned or a parent of that person has had
his or her usual place of residence in the parish for a period of
at least 6 months, or has habitually attended public worship in the
parish for that length of time; a parent or grandparent of the
person concerned was married in the parish. The Ecclesiastical
Committee is of the opinion that the Measure is expedient. The bulk
of the report contains comments and explanations from the General
Synod. The text of the Measure is contained in 'HL 96-I/HC 511'
