Clearing the River Thames to Oxford.
vice lecta est Billa, An Act for the Explanation and Execution of an Act of Parliament, made
in the Third Year of His Highness's Reign of this
Realm of England, intituled, An Act for clearing the
Passage by Water, from London, to and beyond the
City of Oxon.
Warrants to search Records for Privileges.
The Earl of Huntingdon declared, That the Lords
Sub-Committees, for taking Consideration of the Customs, Orders, and Privileges, &c. had met; and, for
their better Information, had begun to make Search and
View of some Records; and, finding such Search to be
intricate and tedious, do desire, that, for their Ease, and
more speedy Proceeding in that Business, the said Lords
Sub-Committees may, by Order of this House, be authorized, under the Hands of Three of their Lordships
at the least, to depute, and give Warrant unto, certain
Persons, to make Search, and have View, in all or any
His Majesty's Records, touching the Matter and Subject aforesaid, in such Sort, as by Order of this Court,
taken on Wednesday the Fourteenth of this Instant February, the said Lords Sub-Committees may or are
authorized to do; which was generally agreed, by all
their Lordships now present.
Rectifying the Journal Book.
It was likewise moved, That the said Lords SubCommittees shall and may daily, or as often as their
Lordships shall think fit, peruse and rectify the Journal
Book of this House, and the Entrances therein made,
and hereafter from Time to Time to be set down, by
the Clerk of the Parliament; which was Ordered accordingly.
The Absence of the Lord Archbishop of Cant. excused by the Lord Chancellor, for Want of Health.
Lord Dacres excused, for the like Cause.
The Lord Bishop of excused, because he is Tomorrow to preach at Paules Crosse.
Judges doubtful to deliver Opinion concerning His Majesty's Prerogative.
The Lord Hunsdon shewed to the House, That the
whole Body of the Committee, for taking Consideration
of the Customs and Orders of this House, and Privileges,
&c. did lately meet; and, on some Point then in
Debate among them, did require the Opinion of Two
Judges, formerly appointed to assist and attend them,
and then present; which Judges, his Lordship further
declared, were doubtful to deliver any Opinion, or
thereof to enter into Discourse, for that the Matter proposed did, as the same Judges then alledged, touch His
Majesty's Prerogative: But their Lordships conceiving,
and being persuaded, that the same did not any way
concern His Highness's Prerogative, therefore such
Forbearance of the Lords the Judges, to satisfy them
in a Matter demanded, and the Reason thereof given as
aforesaid, was, as his Lordship further said, much disliking and distasteful to the said Lords Committees.
Unto that which the Lord Hunsdon had spoken, the
Lord Houghton added, that what the (fn. *) Earl which last
spoke had delivered, did not proceed from Curiosity in
the Lords Committees aforesaid, who had perused the
Writs of Summons directed to the Lords the Judges, and
find that they are thereby called, "Consilium impensuri."
Lastly, his Lordship affirmed, that the said Lords Committees are all tender of His Highness's Prerogative,
and know it to be so fitting.
Hereupon it was thought fit, that the Two Judges,
whom the Matter next before handled and set down did
concern, should be heard, to answer and speak thereunto.
And, because one of them was not this Day present, nor
did now attend the Court; therefore it was Ordered,
That both the said Lords the Judges shall, at the next
Sitting of this Court, be present, and attend the same.

vice lecta est Billa, An Act for the freeing

Enlargement of the Earl of Berkeshire, who Yesterday
was, by the House, committed close Prisoner to The
Fleet, for such Contempt by his Lordship towards this
Court as then appeared; upon which Motion, it was
Ordered, and Agreed, that the said Earl shall presently be

to continue until this House shall take further Order
