Before the putting of the abovesaid Question, Leave was asked, and granted, for any Lords to dissent, which Way soever the Question was carried; and the Lords whose Names are hereunder subscribed do dissent, in the Reasons following:

"1. Because the principal Objection made to this Bill was, the great Danger that might happen thereby of the too long continuing this present Parliament, which is an ill Consequence that we can no Ways apprehend; since we hope, and humbly conceive, His Majesty will never be capable of taking any Advice of that Kind, so plainly destructive to the Subjects just Rights of Election to frequent Parliaments, and so many Ways inconsistent with the Good of this Nation.

"2. Because we are not only very sensible of the just Occasion given for such an Act (though we are loth to enlarge upon so tender a Subject); but have good Reason to believe the House of Commons would not have begun and passed a Bill of this Nature, wherein the Members of that House are so particularly concerned, without having been fully satisfied in the Reasons for it, and plainly convinced of that great Need the People of England are in at this Time of so just and wife a Provision.
