We list the Church of England here as it has certain statutory powers, which in relation to some of its functions give it the character of a public body. For example, "Measures (a form of 'primary' legislation) are passed by the General Synod. If approved by both Houses of Parliament they then receive the Royal Assent and - by virtue of the Church of England Assembly (Powers) Act 1919 (see below) - have the same force and effect as Acts of Parliament;"
