Serjeant Charlton reports from the Committee of Privileges and Elections, touching the Election for the Town of Northampton, between Sir William Dudley, and Sir James Langham, That there were several Persons who had Right to give their Voices in the Election, that did demand the Poll, and were denied it; and that the Matter was so intricate, that the Committee could not determine what the Number was, of those who had Right to give their Voices, and were denied the Poll: And therefore, for this Reason, the Committee was of Opinion, that the Election, as to Sir James Langham, was a void Election.
Resolved, upon the Question, That this House doth agree with the Committee, that the Election for the Town of Northampton, as to Sir James Langham, was a void Election.
Ordered, That Mr. Speaker do make out his Warrant to the Clerk of the Crown, for the Issuing of a Writ for a new Election for the Town of Northampton.
