That at a request of any Member of the Council, a division shall take place to ascertain the opinions of the Members on any matter submitted to them. 3. That on a similar request the list of such Members shall be entered on the Minutes. 4. That any Member of the Council shall be at liberty to suggest any proposition to the Bishop for the purpose of having it 8

5 submitted to the consideration of the Council, and should the Bishop decline to do so, such Member shall be entitled to have the proposition entered on the Minutes, with a notice that it had not been so submitted. 5. That the Bishop shall be at liberty to enter on the Minutes his reasons for refusing to submit any such proposition to the consideration of the Council. 6. That any Member of the Council dissenting from the views of the majority shall be entitled to have his reasons for such dissent entered upon the Minutes. 7. That, except as an Act of Synod or applicable Canon of General Synod may prescribe, a consent, concurrence, advice is given or other decision of the Council is made, by simple majority vote of those members personally present [Rule 7 made by the Council 26 February 2004] 4 The By-Laws of the Council as at 1 April 2007 are as follows: BYE-LAWS OF THE COUNCIL OF THE DIOCESE OF MELBOURNE (Adopted on the 12th April, 1912) 1. In any case in which the Council has the right to appoint any person to any office, except that of a Member of a Committee of the Council, the Members of the Council shall be notified thereof in writing, and nominations in writing, under the hand of a Member, shall be receivable before or at the first meeting held subsequent to such notice; but a majority of Members of the Council present at such meeting may extend the time for receiving nominations, in which case notice in writing of such extension of time shall be sent to each Member of the Council. 2. If the number of persons nominated for election shall not be more than the number to be elected, the persons so nominated shall be declared duly elected. 3. If the number of persons nominated for election exceed the number of persons to be elected, the election shall be held at the first meeting of the Council held subsequent to the date upon which nominations 9 have closed, and such election shall, except as otherwise provided herein, be held in the manner provided by the Acts of the Synod for the regulation of elections. 4. If in the opinion of the Archbishop and a majority of the Council present at any meeting an election shall be deemed urgent, the same may be held forthwith, notwithstanding anything hereinbefore contained, or that previous notice of any vacancy to be filled shall not have been given to Members of the Council. 5 The following Guidelines on conflict of interest were adopted by the Council on 17 August 2000: GUIDELINES ON CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 19 of the 1877 provides No member of the Council or of a Committee of Council shall take part in the discussion or decision of any question in which he or his parish or parochial district is interested unless he be specially requested to do so by the Council. 1. While section 19 does not require that a member make a declaration of an interest, there is nevertheless an implied moral duty for a member of the Council who has a direct interest, or whose parish has a direct interest, in a particular question, to declare that interest. Accordingly, if a member, or a member's parish, has a direct interest in an item on the Agenda of a meeting of the Council or of a Committee, the member should declare the interest at the start of the meeting, or at any event before the item is considered, and should not take an active part in the discussion, and should not vote, on the item. This requirement would not extend to indirect interests of a kind affecting members generally, but would extend to members who serve on the governing bodies of schools, theological colleges, and welfare and missionary agencies when agenda items bear directly on the interest of those bodies. 2. Where a declaration is made and the Council, or a Committee acting under delegation from the Council, decides that, in the circumstances, it is appropriate so to do, the Council or Committee may make a special request of the member to take part in the discussion, and perhaps also to vote. 10

6 3. Items which are listed on an agenda to be dealt with formally ("unstarred items") and in which a member has declared an interest should be voted on separately from other such items. 4. If a member requests that the member's abstention from voting be recorded, or the Council or Committee resolves to record an abstention, the abstention should be recorded in the Minutes of the meeting. 5. Members of the Council should be reminded of the terms of section 19 and consideration might be given to printing the section on Council agendas. 6 Part 2 of the Council of the Diocese (Amendment) Act 2005 contained the following transitional provision: 7. The members of the Council holding office under the Principal Act as in force immediately before the commencement of this Part continue in office until the day before the day on which the Council as constituted under the Principal Act as amended by this Part first meets after that commencement.. APPENDIX Memorandum from Bishop Perry dated 7 November 1864 and Opinion of E F Mitchell, Chancellor of the Diocese, dated 1 October 1911 (as from 3 March 2004 affected by amendments to the made by Act No. 2/2003): MEMO. FROM BISHOP PERRY TO THE REGISTRAR 7TH NOVEMBER, 1864 MINUTE RE COUNCIL OF DIOCESE There appears to prevail in the Diocese (not unnaturally) great misapprehension as to the position and functions of the Council of the Diocese, which it is very desirable, as far as possible, to correct; and with this view I would request that no communication be ever made to the Council, except through the Bishop; and no communication from the Council; but all from the Bishop with the advice of the Council. I should wish the Rules of Practice, &c. in respect of Council to be entered at the beginning of Book of Minutes. C. MELBOURNE 7th November, 1864 OPINION OF THE CHANCELLOR OF THE DIOCESE OF MELBOURNE I can see nothing in these proposed Rules inconsistent with the provisions of the Council of Diocese Act of the Church Assembly, Melbourne (No. 4,1877). The first Rule, in my opinion, merely states in express terms what would be the legal position without it. The Bishop (or, rather as things now exist, the Archbishop) is, I think, alone entitled to bring matters before the Council. Clause 2 of the Act No. 4, 1877, makes it necessary that, in all matters relating to the temporal affairs of the Church, the Bishop shall not act without the consent of the Council; but the Act does not anywhere provide or suggest that the Council can initiate matters relating to the temporal affairs of the Church, and so put the Bishop in motion as to any matter which he does not desire to move in. In other words, the Council is there as an advisory body as to all matters which the Bishop, in the administration of the Diocese, brings before it; and as the Bishop must bring all matters which he wishes to act in relating to the temporal affairs of the Diocese before it, and cannot act in the matters he brings before it without the consent of the Council, it has in effect a power of veto ; but the Council cannot bring forward some matter which the Bishop has not brought before it, carry it by a majority, or even unanimously, against the wish of the Bishop, and so in effect direct him to do something he does not wish to do in the administration of the temporal affairs 11 12

7 of the Diocese. Apart from Rule 1, the other proposed Rules appear to me to be matters connected with the internal regulation and conduct of the business of the Council, which are not, so far as I can see, in any way inconsistent with the provisions of the Act No. 4, (Signed) E.F. MITCHELL 463 Chancery-Lane, 1st October,
