THE CHURCH

Book is illegally in use in every diocese in the country, and that the bishops illegally refuse to take action against its use. Were they to do so they would of course be disobeying the solemnly expressed views of the church, but they would be obeying the secular authorities to whom they owe their appointment, and fulfilling the terms of the solemn oath they swear at their consecration to administer the Prayer Book of 1662.
Parliamentary organisation itself still contains a double recognition of the special position of the church. Clergy may not be members of the House of Commons because they are still presumed to have their separate representation and jurisdiction. The bishops still continue to hold the place they have always held in the House of Lords. The Archbishops of Canterbury and York, and the Bishops of London, Durham, and Winchester have the right to a seat; the remaining twentyone lords spiritual sit by seniority of appointment as bishop. The significance of their share in legislative authority has been reduced both by the great increase in the number of temporal peers and by the accompanying restriction to twenty-six imposed in 1847 in the spiritual peerages, but, although it is true that 26 voices among a potential 700 form an unimportant proportion, there are nevertheless occasions when the opportunity of speech and of leadership in the Upper House exercises an influence on the Government, on Parliament, and on public opinion.
Probably of most significance in the system of the establishment is the fact that archbishops, bishops, and certain other high clerical officials are appointed by the Crown on the responsibility of the Prime Minister.
