1. That the Matter of Fact, in taking Hallage from the Clothiers, above the ancient Hallage usually taken, since the Proceeding of the House upon the Clothiers former Petition, be specially reported to the House: And that the Matter of Fact, which did appear to the Committee, was, that the City had taken Hallage, beyond the ancient Hallage usually taken; demanding Ten-pence, where the ancient Rate is but Eight-pence.

It was resolved in the Affirmative.
