House to be called.
Order against Stoppages by Carts, in Westm. Streets.
Whereas there hath been of late much Interruption, by Carts and Drays, in King-street, in the City of Westminster, so as the Lords and others are frequently hindered from coming to Parliament (to the Disservice of the King and Kingdom, and the Hinderance of the Members in Parliament passing to and from the Houses of Parliament aforesaid): It is therefore ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Steward of the City of Westm. or his Deputy, together with the Justices of Peace of the said City, shall, by their Care and Directions to the Constables within the said Limits, take special Order that no Cart or Dray make any Stay more than for disburdening its Carriage; and that no empty Hackney Coach be suffered to make any Stay between Whitehall and The Old Pallace in Westm. aforesaid, from Nine of the Clock in the Morning to One in the Afternoon of the same Day, during this present Session of Parliament; and that no unnecessary Carriages by Carts or Drays be permitted to go through the said Streets between the Hours aforesaid, during the Sitting of both Houses of Parliament: And herein a special Care is to be taken by the said Justices and their Constables, as the contrary will be answered to this House.
Order to consider of Bishops being Peers, renewed.
