Conflicts between the Cathedral Body and the Bishop persisted. In 1928, a reformation of the Cathedral’s government was proposed. Pew rent was abolished. A new electorate was formed from those registered on the church roll. The Church Body elected a Cathedral Council with the dean as ex-officio chairman. A new ordinance further vested the land, the fabric and the finances of the Cathedral in the Church of England Trustees. Services were under the management of the clergy. The bishop had the right of visitation, but the council was in charge of the finance and the employment of chaplains.
