The Bill allowing women to be ordained as bishops in Wales will come into force one year from today after a last-minute amendment to speed up its implementation.
An original motion, put forward by the six bishops in Wales, would have meant that special arrangements had to be found for priests who do not want to be led by a woman.
This was amended to a one-stage vote to enable the consecration of women as bishops from September 2014.
