Report from Com ee:

And The Lord President reported from the said Committee, "That the Committee had met, and, agreeably to the Instructions of the House, had prepared Reasons which appeared to them to be proper to be offered to the Commons at a Conference for insisting on some of the Amendments made by the Lords to the said Bill, if the House shall think fit to adopt the same.

The Lords having taken into Consideration the Reasons given by the Commons at the last Conference for their disagreeing to the Amendments made by their Lordships to the Bill, intituled, "An Act for abolishing the Punishment of Death in certain Cases, and substituting a lesser Punishment in lieu thereof;"

"The Lords insist on the Amendment made to the said Bill, in Press 3, Line 2, which is to leave out from the Word ("be") to ("transported") in Line 4, to which the Commons disagree.

The Lords also insist on the Amendment made to the said Bill, in Press 3, Line 5, which is to leave out from the Word ("Life") to the End of the Bill, for the following Reasons:

Because they deem it fit and proper that when the Law is altered by taking away the Punishment of Death for the Offences mentioned in the said Bill, the Punishment of Transportation for Life should be substituted by Law, and that if in any particular Case a further Remission of Punishment should appear to be proper, such Remission should emanate from the Clemency of the Crown, instead of being left to the Discretion of the Judge who happens to try the Offender.

The Lords do not insist on the Insertion of Clauses A. and B. at the End of the said Bill.

And the Lords do insist upon the Amendment made by them by the Insertion of Clause C. being of Opinion that it will render the Punishment of Transportation more effectual for its Object."

Which being read by the Clerk;

Ordered, That the said Reasons be communicated to the Commons at a Conference.
