All which being contrary to the Privilege of Parliament, it is thereupon ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Serjeant at Arms attending this House, or his Deputy, do forthwith attach the Bodies of the said John Adams, Richard Cole, and Hammond, and bring them in safe Custody to the Bar of this House, for their said Offence; and this shall be a sufficient Warrant in that Behalf.

Whereas, in some Commissions of the Peace and other Commissions, the Eldest Sons of Viscounts, the Younger Sons of Earls, and the Eldest Sons of Barons, have been of late ranked by the Clerks who write those Commissions after Privy Counsellors who are not Lords, and after Judges; the House being moved, "That, for the future, there may be Care taken for the ranking them in all Commissions in such Order as belongeth to their respective Qualities:"

For Redress thereof, it is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Clerk of the Crown in Chancery, and all other Clerks out of whose Offices such Commissions do issue, do take Care that, in the engrossing of all such Commissions, the said Eldest Sons of Viscounts, the Younger Sons of Earls, and Eldest Sons of Barons, may have the same Precedency as hath been allowed to them upon other Occasions.
