Attachment of a Lord of Parliament.
The Lord Archbishop of Yorke reported, That the
Committee of Privileges met upon the Reference unto
them from the House, whether a Serjeant at Arms may
arrest the Person of a Peer (out of Privilege of Parliament), upon a Contempt of a Decree in the Chancery;
and his Grace reported, That the Committee perused
the Order made here in Parliament Anno 14° Eliz upon deliberate Advice of all the Judges, and of the
Queen's Learned Counsel, touching the Attachment of
the Lord Cromewell, for his not obeying an Injunction
of the Chancery; in which Order it is declared, That
t did not then appear, that, by any Statute Law, or
by the Common Law or Custom of the Realm, or by
any Precedent of the Court of Chancery, the Person of any Lord, having Place and Voice in Parliament,
before that Time, hath been attached, and that the said
Attachment appeared to be derogatory and prejudicial
to the ancient Privileges claimed to belong to the said
Lords of this Realm; with this Proviso nevertheless, in
the said Order, That if, at any Time after, there shall be
shewed sufficient Matter, that, by the Prerogative, or by
any Statute, or by the Common Law, or sufficient Precedents, the Persons of any of the Lords of Parliament
ought, in such Case, to be attached, then that to take
Place which so shall be shewed and warranted.
His Grace also reported, That the said Committee
had perused divers Precedents of Attachments of Lords
of Parliament, since the said Order of 14° Eliz whereof
one was Anno 18° Eliz and most of them were in the
Time of King James, but none of them before the said
14th Year of Queen Eliz. and that the Committee, considering of the said Precedents, did find that some Lords,
not knowing their Rights, had submitted unto the said
Attachments, and that some of them were not attached, though so ordered to be; and therefore, seeing no
Precedent hath been shewn before the said 14th Year of
Queen Eliz. in Contradiction of the said Order, the
Committee are of Opinion, That the like Declaration
be made, that the Lords of Parliament ought to enjoy
their ancient and due Privileges, and their Persons to be
free from such Attachments, with the same Proviso as
in the said Order is contained; and, for that it is necessary to have some settled Course in the Chancery, to compel a Lord of Parliament to perform Trust, and the like,
the said Committee are also of Opinion, That some Order
therein be made and declared by this House.
This Report being ended, the said Order of ultimo
Junii, Anno 14° Eliz. was read; after some Debate
hereof in the House, it was Ordered as followeth.

"2 It is generally assented unto, That the Peers of
the Land shall enjoy the same Privilege from Attachments out of the Chancery, as is mentioned in
the Order of Parliament, ultimo Junii, Anno 14°
Eliz with the same Proviso there expressed in the
Cause of the Lord Cromewell".
