and Disendowment, and Bishop Creighton's 'The Church and the Nation.' In the following passage (op. cit., pp. 36, 37) Bishop Creighton states the real issue raised by the Welsh Disestablishment Bill :
It is obvious that the Disestablishment of the Church in Wales must carry with it the whole question of the existence of a National Church. It is useless to say that the Church of England is not menaced, that it stands upon a different footing, and is not affected by complications which arise from differences of race and language. If the Church in Wales is disestablished, there is no longer any basis of principle left; the existence of a National Church is left as a matter to be settled by local convenience. An agitation in any group of counties might lead to a similar demand in other parts of England; and if the question was skilfully combined with other points of immediate political interest, its importance might be obscured.
•We have a right to demand that so large a question should not be approached piecemeal, and should not be discussed in relation to merely local and temporary con. ditions. There is no ground on which the Church in Wales can be separated from the rest of the English Church. It has had no separate history since the eighth century.
Long before Wales was politically united with England it was united ecclesiastically. There has been no breach in the continuity of that connexion. The attempt to represent the Church in Wales as “an alien Church,” imposed upon a reluctant people, has no warrant in the facts of history.'
