York Buildings Waterworks Company Bill.

The Question was put, "Whether this Bill shall pass into a Law?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Protest against it.

"Dissentientibus:

"1. Because there is in this Act an arbitrary Allowance left to the Proprietors, to exact what Fines or Yearly Rents they please, for the serving the Inhabitants with the said Water.

"2. And that there is no Provision in the said Act, that the Proprietors shall engage for the making good the said Leases, and assuring the Inhabitants they shall not want Water; nor any to apply to for Relief, in case the Inhabitants are injured for Want of Water, or by unreasonable Exactions of the Proprietors.
