Lee, alias Warner, Bill.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act to enable Warner Lee, alias Warner Warner, to make a Jointure upon his Marriage."

Pretended Prince of Wales, Bill of Attainder, Report of Lords Reasons for Amendments to it.

The Earl of Stamford reported from the Lords Committees appointed to inspect the Journals, and draw Reasons for the Lords insisting on their Amendments to the Bill, intituled, "An Act for the Attainder of the pretended Prince of Wales, of High Treason;" the Reasons following.

Which were read entire; (videlicet,)

"The Lords insist on their Amendments made to the Bill, intituled, An Act for the Attainder of the pretended Prince of Wales of High Treason:

"1st, Because nothing can be more agreeable to the Reason and Design of the Bill itself; it being notoriously known, that the pretended Prince of Wales has been bred up in the Romish Superstition, and encouraged to all Acts tending either to the bringing the French Government into this Kingdom, or the dethroning His present Majesty; as well by the Influence of his pretended Mother, as of the French King.

"2dly, Because there is as much Danger to be feared from the Practices of Mary Wife to the late King James, as from any Thing this pretended Prince can attempt.

"3dly, Because, in a Bill of the like Nature, begun in the House of Lords (31° Hen. VIIIvi.) to attaint the Marquis of Exeter, with others, the Commons added a Clause to attaint several Persons not named in that Bill by the Lords; to which the Lords agreed; and the Bill was passed with that Amendment.

"4thly, Because, in the present Case, no Length of Time can give the Lords more Satisfaction of the Reasonableness of such an Attainder."

Then the First Paragraph was read, and agreed to by the House.

Then the Second Paragraph was read, and agreed to by the House.

Then the Third Paragraph was read.

Report recommitted.

It being moved, "To re-commit the said Reasons; and after Debate thereupon:

The Question was proposed, "Whether the whole Report shall be re-committed?"

Then the previous Question was put, Whether "this Question shall be now put?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Then the main Question was put, Whether the "whole Report shall be re-committed?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the whole Report made this Day shall be re-committed to the same Committee as before; and to meet on Monday next, at Ten a Clock in the Forenoon.
