And the Duke of Leeds reported, "That they had met the Managers for the Commons at the Conference which was managed on their Part by Mr. Montagu, who delivered to them the Bill with the Amendments, and also a Paper containing as follows; (videlicet)

"My Lords,

"The Commons being desirous at all Times of maintaining a good Correspondence with your Lordships, have desired this Conference, in order to communicate to your Lordships the Reasons which have induced the Commons to disagree to several of the Amendments which your Lordships have proposed to be made to the Bill, intituled, "An Act for enlarging and better regulating the Gaol for the County of Warwick;" which Reasons are as follow:

"To the First Amendment made by your Lordships in Press 19. Lines 30. and 31. which is to leave out the Words, "have been usually or;" the Commons disagree, because the restraining of the Proceeding directed by this Clause to the Provisions of the Act 12 Geo. 2. (which is the Object of this Amendment), may, where the Usage has been otherwise, be attended with considerable Inconvenience and Difficulty.

"To the Second Amendment made by your Lordships, in Press 19. Line 33. the Commons agree.

"To the Third Amendment made by your Lordships in Press 21. Line 7. the Effect of which Amendment appears to be, to lay the Whole of the Expences to be incurred by this Bill, on all the Persons liable to pay the County Rate; the Commons disagree, because it does not appear to them, either necessary or proper with respect to such Expences, to follow the Method prescribed by the Act of the 11th and 12th of King William, for enabling Justices of the Peace to build and repair Gaols, unless in the common and ordinary Cases of repairing or re-building Gaols in their antient Form and Manner at a moderate Expence, and where the other Regulations and Requisitions of that Act are complied with: Because also, that when any new and extensive Plan is adopted for building a Gaol in which the Number of Cells and Apartments is to be greatly increased, for the various Purposes of better securing or punishing of Offenders, and preserving the Health of the Prisoners consined therein, and Houses and Lands are to be purchased for the Scite of such Gaol, and other Conveniencies adjoining thereto; by which a great additional Expence is to be incurred; so that the Provisions of the said Act of King William are insufficient for the Purpose of carrying such Plan into Execution, and it is therefore become necessary for the Parties to apply to Parliament for further Powers: The Commons think it proper to be attentive to the Method by which such Expence is to be defrayed, to the End that it may be imposed, not on the temporary Farmer or Occupier of the Land, but on those who have a more permanent Interest in the Subject, and are the best able to bear any extraordinary Burthen.

"And as an additional Reason to induce your Lordships to waive such of your Amendments as the Commons have disagreed to, they think it right to state to your Lordships several Instances of Bills (for similar Purposes with the present, and of a recent Date), sent by the Commons to your Lordships, to which your Lordships have agreed without any Amendment, in which Bills, the Tenants of Houses or Lands, on whom Rates and Assessments were to be levied, for certain Public Purposes mentioned in such Bills, were permitted to deduct the same, or some Proportion thereof, out of their Rent, which Deduction was directed to be allowed in Account by the Persons to whom such Rent was payable.

"The Instances are as follow; (videlicet)

"8 Geo. 3. Coventry Gaol.—Tenants to deduct Half the Rates."

"8 Geo. 3. Hertford Shire-House.—Tenants to deduct the whole Rate."

"9 Geo. 3. Nottingham Shire-Hall.—Tenants to deduct the whole Rate."

"23 Geo. 3. Salop New Shire-Hall and Guildhall.— Tenants at full or improved Rent may deduct the whole Rate."

"26 Geo. 3. Salop Gaol.—Tenants to deduct the whole Rate."

"27. Geo. 3. Stafford Gaol.—Tenant to deduct the whole Rate."

"29 Geo. 3. Essex Shire-House.—Tenants to deduct Half the Rate."

"For these and other Reasons (which have induced the Commons to disagree, as well to the First as to the Third of your Lordships Amendments, and which other Reasons the Commons decline offering at present,) the Commons hope, that your Lordships will not insist on such of the Amendments proposed by your Lordships, as the Commons have disagreed to, as the Loss of the Bill, will, as the Commons apprehend, be attended with considerable Public Inconvenience."

Which Report being read by the Clerk:

Ordered, That the same be taken into Consideration on Monday next; and that the Lords be summoned.
