BOLS & POW etc
Your consistent offering of the ‘straw man’ argument that BOLS / POW are not legally binding is becoming irritating now. I know you hate to admit it but we are actually in agreement regarding this point. I have never heard of anyone stating that and I have never stated it in this forum or during the course of my work. Maybe you could let me know when, where and by whom it was said?
however, you can’t seriously believe that POW need only be given the same consideration as any other private document such as you or I might author for instance. It has been published by bishops for heaven sake, and, I might add, wihout demurring from any other irish bishop – or any bishop for that matter. POW deserves our full attention because it pulls together the legislation on spatial requirements and represents the mind of the irish bishops. It has been produced to assist the bishop in his diocese in the discharge of his obligations as all documentation produced by the bishops’ conference is.
