Whereas a Bill, intituled, An Act touching Power and Liberty to repeal certain Uses of a Deed Tripartite, herein mentioned, of and in certain Manors, Lands, and Tenements, of Anthony Cook, of Romforde, in the County of Essex, Esquire, hath been heretofore Three Times read, and assented unto by the Lords; in the which Bill there is no Saving to the Queen's Majesty, or any other Person or Persons, of their lawful Estates, Rights, or Titles:
This Day, there was a Saving drawn, for Her Majesty, and all others, which was offered to this House; and some Question and Ambiguity did grow, whether the Saving should be now added to the Bill; and, in the End, it was Resolved, That the Saving should be added to the Bill; for that it is usual and requisite to have such Savings in every Bill; and for that there was nothing in the Saving contrary to any Matter in the Bill; and that Her Majesty's Right, and all others, be saved thereby; and nevertheless, upon weighty Considerations, the Lords have Ordered, That this shall not hereafter be drawn to make any Precedent.
