L. Bophin's and Earl of Carlingford's Bill, Queen's Prerogative dispensed with.

The Lord Ferrers reported from the Lords Committees, what was drawn by them, to be entered in the Journal, in relation to the Proceeding on the Lord Bophin's and the Earl of Carlingford's Bills.

Which was read, and agreed to by the House, as followeth; (videlicet,)

Declaration, that all Bills of Restitution, and for reversing Attainders, should first have the Royal Signature, and then begin in this House.

"Whereas a Bill hath been brought up to this House from the House of Commons, intituled, "An Act for making Provision for the Protestant Children of the Earl of Clanriccard and the Lord Bophin;" and one other Bill hath been also brought up from the said House of Commons, intituled, "An Act for the Relief of Francis Earl of Carlingford and others, against several Outlawries in the County of Tiperary in Ireland;" both which Bills of Right ought to have begun in this House, and to have been first transmitted hither by Her Majesty: But the Circumstances of these Bills are such, as have drawn the Prosecutors of them, and their Counsel, into the Mistake of beginning the said Bills in the Lower House; which this House is pleased to dispense with upon this Occasion. And the Lord Privy Seal having, by Her Majesty's Command, acquainted this House, "That Her Majesty having been informed, that the said Bills having been brought up from the House of Commons, contrary to the Usage of Parliament, and Her Majesty's Prerogative Royal, which is, to allow and sign Bills for Restitution in Blood, and reversing Attainders of High Treason by Outlawries; Her Majesty, out of Her great Compassion to the Persons concerned in the said Bills, is graciously pleased to dispense with Her Prerogative Royal in this Case, for this Time; and Her Majesty consents that the said Bills be proceeded on, in these particular Cases, so as the same be not drawn into Precedent hereafter." Whereupon it is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said Message be entered in the Journal of this House, with this solemn Declaration, That (though, in Consideration of Her Majesty's Message, and the particular Circumstances of these Cases, which deserve great Compassion, their Lordships do, for this Time, consent that the said Bills be proceeded upon) this House will in no future Times ever receive any Bill for reversing Outlawries, or Restitution in Blood, that shall not first be signed by Her Majesty, or Her Successors, Kings or Queens of this Realm, and sent by Her or Them to this House, first to be considered here."
