OK, this is really simple! Give back the authority to allow study leave to Presbyteries. We do not need a central system nor a central committee of folk to determine whether or not ministers are allowed study leave. Furthermore, study leave is just that - time to study - so we do not need to provide long reports on what we have done - let's keep it simple! Or do we not trust our ministers to do what they say they are doing? The funds can still be administered centrally until the new power-devolved Presbyteries are established but let local parties determine what is and is not acceptable as study leave and make the appropriate arrangements! Mon the reformers!
