- IT WAS FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the Chairman of the Diocesan Council be authorised to do all such acts and things and agree and execute on behalf of the Diocese all such documents as may be reasonably necessary or desirable subject in each case to such amendments as the Chairman or person executing the same on behalf of the Diocesan Assembly shall think fit.
