That the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and the Bishop of London be requested to act as a committee with power to add to their number, to confer personally or by correspondence with the Orthodox Eastern patriarchs, the "Holy Governing Synod" of the Church of Russia, and the chief authorities of the various Eastern Churches with a view to consider the possibility of securing a clearer understanding and of establishing closer relations between the Churches of the East and the Anglican Communion; and that under the direction of the said Committee arrangements be made for the translation of books and documents setting forth the relative positions of the various Churches, and also of such catechisms and forms of service as may be helpful to mutual understanding.
