The majority of British people are in favour of the Church of England allowing women to become bishops, according to the latest ITV News Index Poll carried out by ComRes.
Of those people asked:
- 67% voted in favour
- 13% voted against
- 20% said they did not know
ComRes interviewed 2,055 adults online from 16-18 November.
Anger is building in the Commons over the Church of England's decision on women bishops, but what action, if any, can be taken?
The Church of England General Synod voted against allowing women bishops in what the Archbishop of Canterbury called "a missed opportunity".
Today's debate on female bishops is painfully slow but shows the determination of the Church to build consensus and respect their community.
