 Advices and queries - Britain Yearly Meeting
Yearly Meeting in 1760, troubled that standards in the Society were falling, set up a committee ‘for the promotion and revival of wholesome discipline’ (sources and references), which visited meetings all over the country.
Meeting for Sufferings agreed to publish the draft in 1988 and invited meetings to use it for two or three years and to join in the process of revision by telling of their experience.
Preparative meetings should give periodic consideration to the ways in which advices and queries can be used and they are to report to their respective monthly meetings annually or triennially, as directed, on the use made of them.

The Meeting strives to be present for all its members throughout different stages of their lives and their specific needs -as single people, coupled, or in broader communities -recognizing the Divine in each.
Early Meetings were both a religious body and an economic unit, coming to the aid of persecuted members who risked imprisonment and loss of jobs and property for acting on their beliefs.

 A precious patchwork: Britain Yearly Meeting's Book of Christian Discipline
At our first meeting in the autumn of 1986 we were joined by a member of the previous revision committees whose work had resulted in Christian faith and practice (1961) Advices and queries (1964) and Church government (1967).
Then Meeting for Sufferings received minutes from two Monthly Meetings and one central department, and the process of considering then undertaking revision was set in train by appointing a Memorandum Group to report to Yearly Meeting in 1986.
Yearly Meeting did unite to accept the book, with additions and changes, including changing the title by adding 'Quaker' to 'Faith and practice', and putting the whole into one volume, symbolising the interdependence of our inspiration and our church government.

It was agreed that all Friends (especially Monthly Meeting Representatives) should encourage discussion of these queries in their respective monthly meetings and encourage attendance at the Fourth Month, 2006 Quarterly Meeting, where the afternoon will be devoted their further consideration.
The quarterly meeting has requested representatives to be appointed by each monthy meeting, but most meetings have not done this, and some meetings appoint someone different each time.
This seems to be the case with the yearly meeting, but some Friends seem to feel that the quarterly meeting is simply one more thing added to a long list of responsibilities, and not something which feeds the spirit of the monthly meetings.
