A Message from the Lords, by Sir Nathaniell Hobart
and Sir William Glascock;
Mr. Speaker, The Lords have sent you down a Bill
for making the River Medway navigable, in the Counties of Kent and Sussex: To which they desire the
Concurrence of this House.
Mr. Crouch reports from the Committee, to which the
Bill for settling the Differences between the Two Towns
of Great and Little Yarmouth, touching the Lading and
Unlading of Herrings, and other Commodities, was
committed, That the Committee had examined and
heard the Claim and Interest of both Towns; and, upon
due and serious Considerations of the whole Matter, had,
with some Amendments, agreed the Bill: Which
Amendments he read, with the Coherence, in the Bill;
and after, delivered the same in at the Clerk's Table:
And the Amendments were twice read; and upon the
Question, severally agreed to.
The Question being put, That the Bill, with the
Amendments agreed to, be ingrossed;
The House was divided.
The Yeas went out.
|Sir Phillip Howard,
||Tellers for the Yeas:
|Sir John Holland,
||With the Yeas,|
|Sir Wm. Doyley,
||Tellers for the Noes:
||With the Noes,
But Sir Robert Paston, a Member of the House, appearing to be somewhat concerned in point of Interest;
and having presented the Bill, with his Petition thereto
annexed; and being numbered with the Yeas;
And the Question thereupon arising, Whether, by the
Orders of the House, he should not have withdrawn;
And Sir Robert, to avoid engaging the House in a
Debate, freely offering to withdraw; and that no Advantage should be had by his being told with the Yeas;
And the Voices being then equal; Mr. Speaker
declared himself to be with the Yeas:
And so it was resolved in the Affirmative, That the
said Bill be ingrossed.
