Resolutions concerning the E. of Bristol's Charge against the E. of Clarendon.

The House this Day resumed the Debate which was Yesterday, upon the Opinion of all the Judges, upon the Matter referred unto them concerning the Articles of High Treason against the Lord Chancellor: And, at the Desire of the House, the Judges did declare, for their Lordships Satisfaction, those Reasons and Grounds which induced them to give their unanimous Opinion therein.

The Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas (having conferred with the rest of the Judges) did speak for them all.

And, upon Consideration thereof, this House did vote these several Branches of the Judges Opinion as follow:

"1. We conceive that a Charge of High Treason cannot, by the Laws and Statutes, be originally exhibited by One Peer against another, unto the House of Peers."

The Question being put, "Whether this House doth concur with the Opinion of the Judges herein?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative, nemine contradicente.

"2. And if the Matters alledged in the said Charge were admitted to be true (although alledged to be traiterously done), yet there is not any Treason in it."

The Question being put, "Whether this House doth concur with the Opinion of the Judges herein?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative, nemine contradicente.
