"To the 8th Amendment, the House of Commons are not yet satisfied with the Lords Reasons for the total Omission of the Clause concerning Members of Parliament, but do think it expedient for a Bill by itself; and do therefore agree with the Lords Amendments, and do desire there may be a speedy passing of this Bill."

These Amendments, being read Twice, were Agreed to; and then the said Amendments were read the Third Time.
