Lord F. Pawlett's Bill.

The Earl of Bridgewater reported from the Committee, the Bill, intituled, "An Act to enable the Lord Francis Powlet to settle Four Hundred and Fifty Pounds per Annum, Annuities, on his Younger Children, as a Provision for them," as fit to pass, with some Amendments.

Which, being read Twice, were agreed to; and the Bill ordered to be engrossed, with the said Amendments.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for vesting Part of the Estate of Joseph Dawson Esquire in Trustees, for Payment of Debts, and for a Provision for the Maintenance and Marriage of his Daughters."

Annuities, &c. to enlarge the Time for purchasing, and to continue the Duty on Low Wines, Bill.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, and put into a Committee upon the Bill, intituled, "An Act for enlarging the Times to come in and purchase certain Annuities therein mentioned; and for continuing the Duties on Low Wines, or Spirits of the First Extraction, for carrying on the War against France."

After some Time spent therein, the House was resumed.

And the Lord Bishop of Salisbury reported, "That the Committee had gone through the said Bill; and think it fit to pass, without any Amendment."

To which the House agreed.

Message from H. C. with a Bill.

A Message from the House of Commons, by Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer and others:

Who brought up a Bill, intituled, "An Act for remedying the ill State of the Coin of the Kingdom;" to which they desire the Concurrence of this House.

Coin, ill State of, for remedying, Bill.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for remedying the ill State of the Coin of the Kingdom."

ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said Bill be read the Second Time To-morrow, at Ten of the Clock in the Forenoon.

Sir Rich. Verney s Petition, for a Writ of Summons, considered:

Then the House took into Consideration the Petition of Sir Richard Verney Knight, presented to His Majesty, praying a Writ of Summons to Parliament; and His Majesty's Reference thereupon to this House.

And, after some Time spent in Debate,

To be heard by Counsel:

This Question was put, "Whether the Petitioner Sir Richard Verney shall be heard, at the Bar, by his Counsel, upon this Petition?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Protest against it:

"Leave having been asked, and given, to any Lords to protest, if the Question should be carried in the Affirmative: We, whose Names are underwritten, do protest, for the Reasons following; (videlicet,)

"Dissentient:

"1. Because, as it seems to us, the Petitioner's Case has been already heard and adjudged in this House, upon his former Petition; whereby he claimed to have a Writ of Summons to Parliament from the same Ancestor, by the same Pedigree, and under the same Writ of Summons, by which he makes his Claim in this Petition.

"2. Because the Judgement given by this House upon Sir Richard Verney's former Petition was not, that he had no Right to a Writ of Summons by the Name of Lord Broke; but generally, that he had no Right to a Writ of Summons upon his Case as stated in his Petition.

"3. Because, we conceive, it may tend infinitely to prejudice the Judicature of this House, and to weaken the Security that all Subjects have by the Judgements of this great Court, if the Lords shall permit Judgements once given in so solemn a Manner to be reviewed.

"Bolton.
Somerset.
Devonshire.
Suffolke.
Manchester.
Stamford.
Monmouth.
Bradford.
Maclesfeld.
Culpeper.
J. Bridgewater."
