ORDERED, That the Earl of Dorsett and the Lord
Craven do take the Account of the Clerk of the Crown,
of the Disposal of the Monies received by him for the
Order to prevent Stoppages in the Streets.
The Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench reported,
"That the Judges have considered of their Lordships
Order, referring it to them to prepare an Order for
preventing the Stoppage of the Streets by Coaches
and Carts; and they perusing an Act of Parliament
lately made, granting Power to Commissioners to allow
of a certain Number of Coaches, for which they pay
a Rent for a Public Use, do conceive an Order will
not be so effectual in this Case as an Act of Parliament; which they leave to their Lordships better
And, upon further Consideration thereof, the House
thought to renew the former Order, as follows:
"Whereas there hath been of late much Interruption, by Carts and Drays, in Kingstreet, in the City
of Westminster, so as the Lords and others are frequently hindered from coming to Parliament (to the
Disservice of the King and Kingdom, and the Hindrance of the Members in 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 Westm. or his Deputy, together with the
Justices of the Peace of the said City, shall, by their
Care and Directions to the Constables within the
said Limits, take special Order that no Cart or Dray
make any Stay, more than for disburdening its
Carriage, and that no empty Hackney Coach be sussered to make any Stay, between Whitehall and The
Old Pallace Westminster aforesaid, from Nine of the
Clock in the Morning, to One in the Afternoon of
the same Day, during this present Session of Parliament; and that no unnecessary 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
"To the Steward of the City of Westm. the
Justices of the Peace, Constables, and
other His Majesty's Officers within the
said City, to be aiding and assisting in
the Execution hereof."

concerning the Right of the Earl of Northumb. relating
to the Glebe Lands and the Rectory of Llangeneck, in
the County of Carmarthen, do forthwith appear before
the Lords in Parliament, to answer their high Indignity
to this great Court, and the Violation of the Privilege
due to the Earl of Northumb. a Peer of this Realm and
Lord of Parliament.
