Wilful Perjury, to make Felony, Bill.
The House was adjourned during Pleasure, and put into a Committee upon the Bill, which was re-committed, intituled, "An Act for making wilful and corrupt Perjury, in certain Cases, to be Felony."
And, after some Time spent therein, the House was resumed.
And the Lord Cornwallis reported, "That the Committee had sat thereupon, and thought fit not to make any Amendment."
Whereupon it was ORDERED, That the House shall consider of the Amendments formerly made in this Bill, To-morrow Morning, after the Cause; and all the Lords and Judges summoned to attend.
