coming through King's-street, between Nine and One
of the Clock, during the Sitting of the Parliament,
was read: And it was moved, that an Alteration might

The Question was put, "Whether this Order, as
it is now read, shall pass?"
It was Resolved in the Affirmative.
The Order follows:

City of Westm. so that the Lords and others are
frequently hindered from coming to Parliament (to
the Disservice of the King and Kingdom, and the
Hinderances of the Members of Parliament passing
to and from the Houses of Parliament aforesaid): It
is therefore ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and
Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Steward
of the City of Westminster, or his Deputy, together
with the Justices of Peace of the said City, shall, by
their Care and Directions to the Constables within
the said Limits, take special Order, that no empty
Hackney Coach be suffered to make any Stay between Whitehall and The Old Pallace, Westm. aforesaid, from Nine of the Clock in the Morning to One
in the Afternoon of the same Day, during all the
Sitting of this Parliament; and that no Carriages by
Carts or Drays be permitted to go through the said
Streets, between the Hours aforesaid, during the Sitting of both Houses of Parliament: And herein a
special Care is to be taken by the said Justices and
their Constables, as the contrary will be answered
to this House."
