Upon the Second Reading of this Bill, the House was divided in Opinion, Whether the same should be referred to the Committees on Mr. Essex's Bill, or to some others; and for the Clearing of that Doubt, it was put to the Question, Whether of these Ways it should be committed; which being done, the Number of the Contents and Not Contents being, by Order of the House, reckoned by the Earl of Arundell and Bishop of London, it was found, that the greater Number desired to have it referred to other Committees, whose Names are these: videlicet,
Appointed to meet at the Council Chamber, at the Court at Whitehall, upon Tuesday next, the 27th of March, by Two in the Afternoon.
