Hodie 2a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for making more effectual the Laws in being, for disabling Persons from being chosen Members of, or sitting or voting in, the House of Commons, who have any Pension during Pleasure, or for any Number of Years, or any Offices holden in Trust for them, by obliging Persons hereafter to be chosen to serve for the Commons in Parliament to take the Oath therein mentioned."

Proposed, "To commit the Bill."

After long Debate;

The Question was put, "Whether this Bill shall be committed?"

It was Resolved in the Negative.

Then, the Question was put, "Whether the said Bill shall be rejected?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Protest against rejecting it.

"Dissentient.

"1st, Because the Reasons which were entered on our Journals last Sessions, for the Commitment, and against the Rejection of this Bill, can, in our Judgement, have nothing of Weight said against 'em, as we think they want little to be added to 'em; though they seem to us to be strengthened upon this Occasion, lest our Second Refusal to concur with the House of Commons in what solely regards their own Members, and without any Arguments offered to 'em in a Parliamentary Way for that Refusal, should be looked upon by 'em as an unkind, if not unprecedented Treatment; and should, in the Opinion of many distinterested Lovers of our ancient Frame of Government, too justly create in 'em a Resentment, that might interrupt the Harmony between the Two Houses, which is necessary for carrying on the most important Affairs of the Nation.

"2dly, Because the Commons seemed to think the Bill is wanted, and we are persuaded it is earnestly desired by the People; and so wisely contrived, by a solemn and strict Oath of Purgation, to guard against secret Corruption in that Place, where, if ever it should be prevalent, its Consequences would be most pernicious and extensive, that, we fear, we should be exposed to some uncharitable Suspicions, if we did not, in this most authentic Manner the Constitution of Parliament will allow, from a becoming Zeal to hinder the Infection of so mischievous an Evil from spreading among others, give an undeniable Proof that we are untainted with it ourselves.

"3dly, Because a Member of Parliament, who is not ashamed to accept a Gratuity for any Service which he is ashamed publicly to avow, must be conscious to himself, as we fear, that he is guilty of an immoral Action; and therefore we conceived ourselves obliged, not only in Policy, but in Conscience, to yield our Assent to a Bill, that, as far as we could apprehend, upon the most mature and serious Reflection, contained a proper Expedient, in this limited Monarchy, to preserve both the Innocence and Independency of elected Legislators; and that we had reasonable Hopes would, in a great Measure, have prevented the Danger of an infamous Breach of a Trust, of the highest Nature, reposed in every single Member of the Lower House, for the Benefit of the whole Community; which we think a Crime that ought to be dreaded by us, as good Patriots; and that we are bound to abhor, as sincere Christians.

"4thly, Because we cannot but with Grief of Heart lament the Loss of that Opportunity, which, by enacting this Bill into a Law, we assure ourselves, His Majesty would have embraced with particular Satisfaction, of demonstrating to all His Subjects, that He is uncapable of suffering an improper Use to be made, by any of His Servants, of that large Revenue, which a Parliament, liberal beyond any Example of His Predecessors, so chearfully gave Him; or of entertaining Himself the least Thought to the Prejudice of the Liberties or Properties of His People, by any unjustifiable Influence on their Representatives.

It is Ordered, That the Consideration of the said Petition be, and is hereby, referred to Mr. Justice Price and Mr. Baron Comyns; with the usual Directions, according to the Standing Orders.
