Church of England

A public authority

We have added this organisation as it has certain statutory powers. 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;"
