The Archbishops' Council, which in its role as Central Stipends Authority is responsible for these matters, publishes details of the stipends paid to clergy in its annual report to the Church of England's General Synod. The report for 2001 was published in January this year; a copy is available in the House of Commons Library.

The Archbishops' Council is in the course of considering the Department of Trade and Industry's discussion document on employment status in relation to statutory employment rights, published earlier this month.
