But since 2002, when the notion of an unrecognised peal was removed, what purpose has the definition served? Either the Council should be open about the fact that it still recognises peals, or it should accept that it no longer has any valid justification for defining peals.

On this, I think there absolutely is a need for *someone* to define a "peal" in some way, at the very very least there needs to be some form of length criteria unless you want to be able to claim a course of PB Minor as a very short peal (and probably a truth criteria of some kind). If this definition is not provided the CC, then who? The RW in deciding what to publish?
