These Services and Prayers have been commended by the House of Bishops of the General Synod and are published with the agreement of the House.
Under Canon B4 it is open to each Bishop to authorize, if he sees fit, the form of service to be used within his diocese. He may specify that the services shall be those commended by the House, or that a diocesan form of them shall be used. If the Bishop gives no directions in this matter the priest remains free, subject to the terms of Canon B5, to make use of the Services as commended by the House.
On behalf of the House of Bishops
