The first Reading. THE clerk reads the bill, standing at the table, and then delirers the same, kneeling unto the Lord Chancellor, together with a brief of the bill.

The Lord Chancellor reads the title of the Bill, and then reports the effect of the same out of the brief, and concludes, this is the first time of the reading of this bill.

At the first reading, the bill is seldom now spoken against.

There are precedents to the contrary, prout A. H. VIII. 11 de Parliamenti billa de actionibus, brought from the Commons, lecta 1 vice & Domini disputando censuerunt reformandum; quod regia majestas haberet 3 vel 4 annos, pars vero contra partem, nisi unum annum.

And a bill hath been received at the first reading, prout.

Anno 3 E. VI. 14 Nov. Billa pro jurisdictione episcoporum rejected, and a committee appointed to draw a new bill.

The subsidy bill, and the king's general pardon, were used to be read but once, and so were expedited at the first reading.

Yet if a proviso be added to the subsidy bill, that hath been read three times, prout.

So if a proviso be added to the general pardon, that is to be read three times, V. 3 E. VI. 1 Febr.

Anno 35 H. VIII. 4 die Martii 1 Vice lecta est billa, concerning the kings majesty's award, between the Lord Dacres, and the heirs general of Sir James Strangwish the younger, cui quidem billa proceres assenserunt,

Bills, also have been committed at the first reading.

Anno 6 llen. VIII, 14 Febr. recepta est billa in papyro concer. nens apparatum, & lecta est jam primo, & deliberata Magistro Pigott reformanda,

Anno 1 E. VI. 21 Nov. allata est a communi domo billa, for benefices, common preachers, and residence. Quæ 1 vice lecta est, & commissa est Archipiescopo Cant. Episcopis Elien. Dunelm. Roffen. & Lincoln. Marchioni Northampton. Domino St. John, Comiti Arundel, Domino Admiral, & Domino Wentworth.

Anno 5 E. VI. 16 Febr. Hodie 1 vice lecta est billa, to avoid regrating, forestalling, &c. & commissa Magistro Hales, Magistro Molineur, Magistro Saunders, & Sollicitatori Regis.

And there are very many precedents, that bills have been com. mitted at the first reading, in the times of Henry the eighth, and Edward the sixth, as may appear by the committees of those times.

The like precedents I find in most of the journals of Queen Eli. sabeth, prout, &c.

Anno 8 Elis. 3 Oct. Billa, for the better executing of certain statutes, &c.

Eodem Anno 5 Oct. touching fines and recoveries, &c.
Anno 13 Elis. 20 April. against fraudulent conveyances, &c.
Anno 14 Elis. 12 May, for preservation of wood, &c.
Eodem Anno & Die, for the punishment of vagabonds, &c.
And so in many other parliaments of Elis, &c.

[ocr errors]

The second Reading. IN the same manner, the clerk reads the bill the second time, andı delivers the same without a brief to the Lord Chancellor. : • His lordship. recites the title thereof only, and saith, this is ther second reading.

Then if no man speaks against the bill, it is ordered to be en. grossed, if begun with the lords; or to have a third reading, if brought from the commons.

If any doubt be conceived, which is often pro forma tantum, the bill is committed.

V. inter ordines, &c. an. 18 Jacobi.

Bills are commonly let pass at the first reading, and committed at the second.

Yet it appears by many precedents of Henry the eighth, and Edward the sixth, and Queen Elisabeth, that if the lords did apprehend any dislike or doubt in the bill at the first reading, it was then committed immediately, prout antea.

The Commitment of Bills. AT the second reading, if the bill be required to be committed, the Lord Chancellor demands of the lords, how many of each bench shall be of the committee.

Which being agreed on to three, five, or six, &c. the earls are first named, then the bishops, then the barons.

The like order is observed in the naming of committees for any other business.

And if there be five earls, then five bishops, and ten barons; the reason whereof I know not. Neque fuit sic a principio.

Anno 3 E. VI, 14 Nov, the committees, to frame a bill for the jurisdiction of bishops, were the Marquis of Dorset, four bishops, and two barons.

Eodem anno 2 Januarii, the committee, sent to the Duke of Somerset, were, one earl, five bishops, and two barons.

Anno 27 Elis. 4 Decemb. the bill for the clothiers of Boxsted, &c. was committed unto three earls, one viscount, one bishop, and three barons.

Eodem anno 3 Dec. the bill for the landing of merchandise, &c. was committed unto eight earls, two bishops, and four barons.

Eodem anno 27 Elis. the first bill, for increase of mariners, was committed unto two earls, and six barons, and no bishops.

Eodem anno & die, the bill, for the sabbath-day, is committed unto six earls, one viscount, five bishops, and seven barons.

The precedents hereof are infinite, that no such order was observed to name a set number of each bench, or to double the number of barons until in the latter parliaments of our late King James : neither was this constantly observed, until the parliament of 12 Jacobi Regis, and afterwards. For in the fourth session of the par. liament, anno 1 Jacobi Regis, sometimes the number of each is equal, and sometimes the barons are the greater number. But they seldom double the number of the other bench, unless in the com. mittees of a small number.

But here may be a question (viz.) whether a bill may be com. mitted by the orders of the house, if no lord more any doubt, or im. perfection in the same?
