Preserving Timber in Deane Forest.
Another Proviso, to prevent the Firing of Wood in the Forest, was twice read: But it being found necessary to make some Alterations thereunto, which could not be done at the Table, the Proviso was withdrawn, that the Recommitment of it might not hinder the passing of the Bill: But the Sense of the House was, that a Bill might be brought in next Session, for a general Remedy of Mischiefs of this Kind.
Resolved, &c. That the Bill do pass: And the Title shall be, An Act for Increase and Preservation of Timber within the Forest of Deane: And Sir Bainham Throckmorton is to carry up the Bill to the Lords.
