And, upon the Question, passed.
This Day, the Lord Archbishop of Cant. remembered the Lords, that heretofore, anciently, and always until of very late Time, this High Court did ever forbear to sit upon Wednesdays and Fridays; for that the Lords the Bishops, on those Days, did and were accustomed to meet and be busied in the Convocation. Therefore his Lordship moved the House, That, for the same Cause, their Lordships would be pleased not to meet or sit here in Counsel upon the said Days, namely, on Wednesdays and Fridays; which Motion was generally allowed, with Provision, That the Lord Chancellor do propose unto the House, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, whether the Court will sit the next Day or not, or shall be adjourned as before, as by the Lord Archbishop of Canterbury was moved.
